Maximum Capacity


As the jury breaks for deliberation, Glen (John Bourgeois) , the father of the murdered girl leaves the courtroom for some fresh air. Hounded by a reporter, he sees an elevator door open and leaps in to escape. Once inside, he finds himself riding with Eli (Eugene Lipinski), the father of the accused.

Trapped between floors when the elevator gets stuck, the two men are forced to confront each others hates and fears and the pains of fatherhood during a tragedy. Ultimately, each begins to understand the incomprenhensible and see the world through the others eyes. In their journey to find justice, revenge and redemption, the two men emerge from the elevator having found tolerance.
