Synopsis

Storyline:
After dropping her son off at the bus stop, the doting mum and high school science teacher, Jessica Martin, is kidnapped at gunpoint, and thrown in an unknown attic with only a nearly unusable phone. As her world turns upside down in an instant, the desperate mother manages to jury-rig the device and connects with the cell phone of the young college student, Ryan. Now, Jessica’s life is literally in Ryan’s hands–and as the ruthless abductors threaten to kill her–Ryan has to act fast to rescue the woman on the other end of the line. However, with a dying battery, how can Ryan save Jessica when this could be her last phone call?

User Reviews: Awesome flick! Kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. The plot twists were surprisingly convincing and I didn’t have to stretch too far to suspend disbelief. It way outshone my expectations and I found myself swept right up in the action. The acting was superb and the direction kept us moving from nail-biting suspense to laughing at the stereotyped ignorant store clerks, nasty lawyers and others that are encountered at various points in the script. What a great balance of believable and amusing! We had the greatest time enjoying this film. The parts that weren’t so believable were very satisfying and the parts that were believable were incredibly suspenseful. The point is, the whole thing made for a terrific package. No, you won’t go home a better person for having seen this. And you won’t carry the images with you or ponder great philosophies because of it. It’s not a To Kill a Mockingbird of Of Mice and Men, but it is a wonderful escape from all you problems for a couple hours and you’ll feel like you’ve been on the most exhilarating thrill ride you could find in the park! All thumbs up for this one!
