In Dallas, the thirty-one year old arrogant lawyer Gary Wheelan is a wolf, unfaithful husband and gambler. He works at a law firm and presently he is defending the scum Vernon Woods, who has embezzled a large amount from retired people, and Mr. Sloan, who wants to declare his mother senile to administrate her money. Gary wins one bet and when his bookie Doc pays the amount, he decides to buy a Jaguar betting again. Gary offends a telephone operator and later she returns to him telling that she is Shiva (the destroyer and transformer Delty from the Hinduism) and she will destroy his life. From the next day on, Shiva interferes in Gary's life that turns upside-down and he loses his wife, his car, his credit rating and his reputation. What will happen to Gary?Written by

The scene where Gary's car door is taken off by a passing car, was done in one take, with two cameras. There was no stunt double in the car - Michael Laurence did the shot himself. See more »
Great movie for anyone who answers phones for a living!!
I have been answering phones for a living for the past 5 years, and the abuse that my co-workers and I take on a daily basis is unbelievable. When I saw this movie, I got a warm feeling inside!! This is how the operators feel when we get abused by customers. I don't like violent movies, but this one was done with good taste, and I would have loved to be in that operator's place. Next time you decide to get abusive to a customer service rep, please watch this movie!! I watch it every time I have a bad day and it instantly makes me feel better! As for the content of the movie, everything was very well done. I never felt any sorrow for the caller, and felt that the operator was justified in everything she did.
