Synopsis: The film begins with a person committing suicide by jumping from a building narrated by Ramirez who mentions that his mother tells him stories of the Devil roaming the earth, and it always begins with a suicide.

Detective Bowden is called to the scene to aid in the investigation. Bowden is a recovering alcoholic devastated by the death of his wife and child in a hit-and-run accident by a driver who was never caught. As this is happening, five strangers, who have committed various crimes in the past, step onto an elevator located within the same building where the suicide has taken place.

The strangers include Ben, a temp security guard with a violent past; an elderly woman who is a compulsive thief; Vince, a mattress salesman who moonlights as a con artist; Tony, a former mechanic who served in the U.S. military during the War in Afghanistan who is now seeking employment within the building; and Sarah, a greed encompassed heiress meeting with her lawyer in the building.

Strange things start to occur beginning with the elevator becoming stuck between floors. As the strangers try to get out of the situation, only one knows that the devil right there.
