When a devoted wife and mother learns that her husband is leaving her, down the line of a crackling payphone, her world falls down around her. Just as the depth of her husband’s infidelity is about to be revealed her credit runs out, the phone cuts off and she is left searching for answers, for reason, for hope. When her young disabled son appears with a coin to offer – a chance to call back, to keep searching – she discovers that here with her now is all that she was searching for.
The film was written and directed by Jo-Anne Brechin, who’s film This Dog’s Life was produced as part of Metro Screen’s First Break 2011 funding initiative.
