For the first time in years, Blaine Bishop will be spending Thanksgiving alone, and she can't wait. This year, she won't worry about the stress of travel or family dynamics. She won't stress the weekend away and wonder where her vacation went. Instead, she will spend Thanksgiving doing whatever she wants. But of course, as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
After completing a routine errand for her boss at a client's office, Blaine takes the building's ancient elevator down to the main floor. The start of Blaine's four-day holiday weekend is just minutes away when an obese redheaded woman joins her on the elevator. As luck would have it, the elevator suddenly stops, and Blaine finds herself trapped between floors with a stranger.
Blaine's fantasy weekend is now destroyed, as they have no clue when they will be rescued. Even worse, the redhead seems determined to talk nonstop. Blaine finds herself a captive audience. As the hours pass and help does not arrive, she finds herself wondering just how long she can stand it.
