IMDB Trailer



Getting into this movie, I had no idea the entire thing would be filmed in a single location pretty much. The whole movie is based on a demoted cop with some serious issues. Its not apparent the trauma this man has faced in the beginning, but he takes a call that will change his life and those on the other end of the phone.

I was vested in the story line pretty early into the movie. Of course, I wanted to know what was going on with the ex-cop, but the way the storyline progressed with the secondary characters was intense and heartbreaking. The end of the movie is a plot twist you might not see coming, so I won't go into detail, but you can watch this movie on Netflix right now and its a good one.
