"This grungy little noir is like a lost short story by Jim Thompson." -- Dave Kehr, New York Daily News

A prank phone call becomes telephone terrorism when it leads to murder. The caller, played by Jeff Strong (Walls in the City, Glimmer Man), is a telephone salesman and sometime telemarketing "boiler room" thief. His false report of a positive HIV test administered at a clinic run by his sister, played by Paula Killen (Mad Dog and Glory, Walls in the City), leads a young woman, played by Lara Phillips (Road to Perdition, Kwik Stop), to kill her abusive stepfather. Her ne're-do-well boyfriend, played by David Yow (vocalist for The Jesus Lizard), attempts to cash in on tabloid television's interest in the story. In a whirlwind of unintended consequences, strange opportunities present themselves and a perverse redemption offers itself to the caller.
