A group of individuals in mall get stuck on a broken escalator. Only interested in their own lives and technology, tensions rise as they try to find the best way off of the escalator. It isn't until they are able to band together against an snooty shopper by throwing her into a foutain that they are able to find a way to not only get off the escalator, but open up to the people around them.
