Two old friends, past their prime youth, ILIE, an exponent of the sacrifice generation of the 90s, and SERGIU, one of those who quickly adapted to the new system, get stuck in the building’s elevator and spend, after many years , some more time together.
The two are haunted by memories, each trying to build bridges from their shared past to each other’s unknown present. ILIE takes advantage of the situation to confront SERGIU about some money that, he claims, he lost in a pyramid scheme through his fault. Against the backdrop of alcohol consumption, the two jump from one to the other and realize that the past is in the past.
