Picking up after "Plummet" and "Broken", we follow Victoria as she adapts to her new role, and explores the contents of her mysterious library. When she is led by her music box to a special collection of journals, she finds a way to reconnect with her father who was lost when The Building fractured reality.
The Storm
For years, Rachel has suffered at the hands of her abusive boyfriend, a boxer named Tony ‘The Storm’ Matroni. When she decides she's finally had enough, and the opportunity presents itself, she makes a choice she regrets. A trip on The Lift to the 6th Story offers her a second chance to choose.
Welcome to The Lift. You've already met Victoria, but why is she trapped in this place? What happened to make her what she is? In this week's story, we meet Victoria near the beginning of her story in 1901. She called out to Nikola Tesla for help in the Season One Teaser, and this week, he responds. Find out more about the building, the entities who reside there, and get some clues as to what set these things in motion.
Enjoy this teaser for Season One. Here, Victoria reaches out to Mr. Tesla for help via Spirit Radio. A quote from Nikola Tesla: "My first observations positively terrified me as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural, and I was alone in my laboratory at night." - Nikola Tesla 1901
Here, The Lift is controlled by a mysterious girl who is more than she seems. The building is hard to find. Only those who are meant to find their way inside ever do. Each floor offers a portal into a different place. All are paths to change and transformation – if only you’re brave enough for the journey. Would you like to go for a ride?
