Saturated with the romantic atmosphere of Paris, Elevator to the Gallows tells the story of the events following the murder of Florence’s wealthy husband Simon whom she plotted to kill with lover, Julien Tavernier.

Tavernier’s unfortunate oversight sets into motion a dark ripple of events that bloodies the cold Paris night.
