Storyline

In the middle of the Mojave desert rests an abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows broken, but otherwise functioning. Its identity was born on the Internet and for years, travelers would make the trek down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth, in the hopes that it might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger (often from another country) on the other end of the line. This is the story of four disparate people whose lives intersect with this mystical outpost, and the comfort they seek from a stranger's voice: There is Beth, a troubled woman facing dilemmas with her love-life and a recurring, baffling crime; Mary, a young South African, who is contemplating selling her body for the funds to escape her dreadful existence; Alex, a woman who is losing her lover, Glory, to the belief she is plagued by aliens, and Richard, driven into desperation by a separation from his wife, who happens upon the booth after his failed suicide attempt....

Trivia

Based on an actual phone booth that accepted incoming calls, isolated in the Mojave Desert, which gained an online following. Callers from many countries dialed (619) 733-9969, later (760) 733-9969, to see who would answer (often people who hiked to the spot). The phone was removed at the request of the Mojave National Preserve in 2000, and per SBC policy, the phone booth numbers were retired for good. See more »

can't believe they turned this into a film....nice move.
14 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another place this story about the phone booth was discussed was on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. The location is actually 9 miles East Southeast of Baker California in the aforementioned Preserve in a place called Devil's Playground! Annabeth Gish is a dish! One caller to Art Bell was a " Desert Chad" who camped out as described.....he hailed from the Bay area.On a related foot note......I myself was a caller on the phone booth " in the middle of nowhere " show. Word has it that the park rangers eventually had to shut the phone down by removing it due to the environmental impact of too many people wandering to and from it! The phone booth was originally placed to help miners on a break nearby to make calls they couldn't otherwise.Waiting to find this on DVD.
