Five strangers find themselves trapped in an elevator of a luxurious hotel, witnessing the death of a former government official. Just before he dies, he claims that he has been poisoned and urges the five strangers to seek out and expose his killers. They must solve the mystery, that started several years ago. The bond between them will grow strong, and maybe, in the end, they can discover that somehow their presence in the elevator at that particular moment, was more than "accidental"... Written by
An Elevator, Five People and One Poisoned Man.
Did You Know?
The name and the characteristic accent of the mysterious character of Amalia (played by Zeta Makrypoulia
in the series) were invented by the series writer Giorgos Kapoutzidis
when he and Z. Makrypoulia were starring in the theatrical hit "Sesouar gia dolofonous" (the Greek translation of B. Jordan and M. Abrams' "Shear Madness"). One of the characters of the play (an old lady who, in some versions, was killed by the character of Makrypoulia) was named "Amalia". As for the accent, it started as a joke by Z. Makrypoulia who decided to pick it up during the rehearsals for the play. Moreover, Zeta Makrypoulia was the only person (appart from the writer) who knew all along what was the story behind her mysterious character. However, she did not admit that (although she was frequently asked by journalists and fellow cast members) until after the series finale in June 2007. See more
