Synopsis

Bologna in August. Unbearable heat, an empty city. Claudia is a young student in a hurry to return home from her work as a waitress and get out of the uniform she hates. Tomas is a young man on his way to elope with his girlfriend Francesca and rescue her from her dysfunctional family. Aldo is a husband and father with an uncanny resemblance to Elvis Presley, anxious to get to an apartment filled with guilty secrets. All three have an urgent need to be somewhere else. Instead, they are trapped in a lift in a deserted building on a holiday weekend...and one of the trio is a serial killer. This dark, twist-packed psychological thriller has been adapted as a film by Mexican director, Rigoberto Castaneda, who made last year's Mexican/Spanish co-production "Kilometro 31", screened at the London Film Festival.

Gianluca Morozzi was born in Bologna in 1971, where he lives today. His most recent titles include "L'era del porco" and "Blackout", the first roman noir written by Morozzi, better known as a cutting edge satirist and music critic. He is usually compared to Nick Hornby but in "Blackout" he evokes (in a very Italian way) the satirical touch of Ben Elton's novel "Popcorn".
