Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) is an experienced 911 operator but when she makes an error in judgment and a call ends badly, Jordan is rattled and unsure if she can continue. But then teenager Casey Welson (Abigail Breslin) is abducted in the back of a man's car and calls 911. And Jordan is the one called upon to use all of her experience, insights and quick thinking to help Casey escape, and not just to save Casey, but to make sure the man is brought to justice.

Did You Know?
Screenwriter Richard D'Ovidio
got the idea for the film when his wife saw an interview with a 911 operator on TV. Researching the subject, he visited the Los Angeles Metropolitan Communications Dispatch Center and was surprised to find that it had its own back-up generators, bulletproof windows and a moat. See more
Somewhere around 1:06:38, Halle Berry's character is replaying the conversation with the victim. At some point the camera points towards the screen revealing that the duration of the call was only 22 minutes and 15 seconds, this is obviously a mistake considering they have actually been on the phone for an hour or so (The screen also says "CD-02" which could very well mean the archive only records calls in 1 hour segments and the first segment was an hour, but that is not confirmed).

A lot of times you don't know how it ends. When your units get to a scene you sign off and they take over. But, you don't know. Did they make an arrest, shoot the bad guy, did the PR live, did she die...
