Storyline

In the middle of the Mojave desert rests an abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows broken, but otherwise functioning. Its identity was born on the Internet and for years, travelers would make the trek down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth, in the hopes that it might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger (often from another country) on the other end of the line. This is the story of four disparate people whose lives intersect with this mystical outpost, and the comfort they seek from a stranger's voice: There is Beth, a troubled woman facing dilemmas with her love-life and a recurring, baffling crime; Mary, a young South African, who is contemplating selling her body for the funds to escape her dreadful existence; Alex, a woman who is losing her lover, Glory, to the belief she is plagued by aliens, and Richard, driven into desperation by a separation from his wife, who happens upon the booth after his failed suicide attempt....

Trivia

Based on a real phone booth that accepted incoming calls, isolated in the Mojave Desert, which gained an online following. Callers from many countries dialed (619) 733-9969, later (760) 733-9969, to see who would answer (often people who hiked to the spot). The phone was removed at the request of the Mojave National Preserve in 2000, and per SBC policy, the phone booth numbers were retired for good. See more »

Quotes

Greta: Have you ever considered a removable face?
Beth: I'm not sure how I'm supposed to feel about that. I have actually. But that would mean they won. I refuse to let them think they're better than me.

Original Movie
13 January 2007 | by acolbenSee all my reviews

In a time where the corporations of the motion picture industry give the public rehashes of films already made, this film rises above the studio mentality and gives you something that is......original. Not only is the that, but it makes you think about the modes of communication that todays technology offer the public and how these modes have hindered true intimacy, as well as the comfortability (or lack thereof) that people have with intimacy. The stories in this film are gently insane, but only as insane as real life stories in real people's lives. The writing, is wonderful, the story is excellent, the editing is superb, and the acting is quite good.
