Short Film Profile


A man works on the 33rd floor of a tall office building. Each day he takes the elevator to the 26th floor, then, climbs the remaining seven flights of stairs to his place of work. Why?

Daniel is an English dwarf bicycle courier living alone on deserted wasteland in the outskirts of Barcelona. Each day he rises and embarks on a routine of exercise, breakfast and a daily ride into the city. Yet, hurtful and disparaging remarks with the occasional stare, weigh heavily on this little man’s shoulders.

On one quite normal, hot sunny day, Daniel finds himself arriving at one particular office building three times in succession. Daniel sees an opportunity to strike up a relationship with a young receptionist Sara, whom, he thinks may be different. But first, he must first encounter the elevator, and get to the 33rd floor without losing face.

Things don’t go to plan and Daniel takes solace on a seemingly deserted, isolated beach. Later, by chance, Daniel comes across Ana and her blind Mother, at a nearby café, who’s direct lack of tact, suggest Daniel should consider, that maybe some of his problems are self inflicted.
