This unnerving drama is based on the true story of a notorious US prank call incident. It's a typically busy day at Ohio fast food restaurant ChickWich. But the lives of two of its employees are about to be turned upside down. Manager Sandra (Ann Dowd) receives an unexpected call from a policeman called Officer Daniels (Pat Healy). Daniels states that one of the restaurant's employees, a girl named Becky (Dreama Walker), has stolen money from a customer. Becky matches the description given by Daniels and he convinces Sandra that she has indeed committed the crime. Daniels induces Sandra to follow his step-by-step instructions - but what she doesn't know is that he is in fact a prank caller. And his questions become ever more invasive as events take increasingly disturbing turns. Based on a shocking 2004 strip search prank call scam that stunned America, Craig Zobel's mesmerising film is a deeply unsettling morality story with some outstanding performances.
