Synopsis
Paglalaro, dahas, barilan, patayan, at ang walang katapusang taas-baba ng pag-aabang--ilan lamang sa mga salitang naglalarawan sa Elevator Action.

Dinadala ng adaptasyong ito ang mga tauhang sina Ben at Gus—mga beteranong hired killer—sa isang basement sa isang gusali sa Bulacan.

Habang hinihintay ang detalye sa kanilang kasunod na assignment mula sa isang di pinapakilalang “boss,” kinukuwestyon ni Gus ang mga kumplikasyon ng kanilang trabaho. Sino ang naglilinis tuwing matatapos ang assignment?  Sino ang boss ng kanilang boss? Sino ang tunay na nagpapaandar ng lahat?

Sa pag-aabang nina Gus at Ben, sisingit sa eksena ang isang serving hatch—ang dumb waiter—na nagbababa-taas at nagpapahanda ng iba’t ibang klase ng pagkain mula sa dalawang hired gun.

Pinipilit ng dalawang bida na makasunod sa mga order ng maliit na elevator na ito, habang patuloy na inaabangan ang utos na kukumpleto sa kanilang misyon.
