Six weeks after witnessing the brutal murder of her best friend, Andrea is starting to put the pieces of her life back together. Immersing herself in her work, she accidentally stays too late and finds herself the last person in a darkened office building.
She makes it to the safety of the elevator, already wishing she was home safe and sound, when the elevator makes an unexpected stop and to her absolute disbelief - the man she witnessed standing over her best friend's bloody body GETS ON THE ELEVATOR with her!
She's paralyzed with fear as the doors snap shut and the elevator begins to descend again. He has no idea who she is, but there is no question that this was the man who killed her friend. All she has to do is make it to the bottom floor and get to the security desk to call the police...
But, as fate would have it, the elevator - prone to such problems - gets stuck between floors and Andrea is trapped inside along with a brutal murderer!
The first collaboration between Your Half Pictures, LLC and Adakin Productions, Descent is a thrilling short directed by Jay Holben, whose previous works include the Stephen King adaptation, Paranoid and the touching drama The Night Before.
