Sean’s vicious attack leaves a man unconscious and him stranded in an elevator with five others. In the confines of the lift, love has a chance of blossoming – violence has a chance of erupting – Sean has little chance of escape. With his freedom hanging in the balance can the people who fear him offer him one last chance of redemption?
We are extremely excited to be partnering up with the talented filmmakers of Lift to release this thrilling new film. We are huge supporters of Irish film and are beyond thrilled to be bringing this film to audiences in the U.S. and around the world!
Jason Ward, CEO – Candy Factory Films

It has been so much fun touring Lift around the world in film festivals and we are just over the moon to have it find it’s home with Candy Factory Films. We’ve been amazed with the positive response it has received so far and can’t wait to get it out to a wider audience.
