On a quiet night, a phone sex operator receives a call from a plaintive man, anxious about his anonymity, in dire need of a confidante. At first, his confessions seem banal to Marcia, but she soon finds herself in a nightmarish thrall and in possession of disturbing secrets.

Mission Statement

This film deals with issues of trauma, abuse, and sex work, all of which, even in 2023, are largely depicted under the male gaze. We're telling this story from a female perspective and from a sex worker perspective in order to start a conversation about how our perceptions need to be reassessed.

The Story

This film is a based on a true story of a call I received during my time as a phone sex operator. It was a profoundly disturbing experience that made me rethink what I was doing and the emotional toll of sex work, of being a vessel for other people's vulnerabilities in a job with no regulations.
