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 a real 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 »

Alex: It sounds more like an alien *crap*.

One more bad DVD for my garage sale ............
2 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

Some very slight material supposedly held together by an isolated phone booth in the Mojave desert. Various characters explain their problems to an unknown individual named Greta on the other end of the line. There are four episodes all seeming to have something to do with sexual frustration, jealousy, and magnetic tape. Countless conversations enlighten Greta about desperate boyfriends, bitchy girlfriends, best friend pimps, and U.F.O. alien parasites. It's unbelievable that all this nonsense is supposed to make sense, after characters from the different episodes eventually come together. Just another bad DVD for my garage sale. - MERK
