Storyline

After suffering the stillbirth of her child, MICHAEL SUMMER returns to her job as a 911 operator and tries to lose herself in work. She starts to unravel when she receives an emergency call from a terrified child she believes is the dead girl from her reoccurring nightmare. The girl's cryptic words haunt her until she becomes obsessed with finding out who the girl was and how she died. When a menacing stranger starts stalking her, Michael realizes the little girl wasn't the only one that slipped through the mysterious door that's opened up to her. As she follows the clues to the girl's home town, she discovers no one, not even the girl's parents, knows the truth about her death. Now Michael believes the menacing stranger stalking her is the girl's murderer and will stop at nothing to prevent her from finding out the truth. When Michael finally places the last piece of the puzzle into place, the picture she sees is too horrific for her to comprehend. Written by Anonymous

Surprisingly Great Television Movie
3 January 2009 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In New York, the operator Michael Summer (Catherine Bell) returns to her work in the 911 Dispatch after the stillbirth of her daughter Emma in the delivery. Michael is still traumatized, having nightmares with a little girl abducting her daughter in the delivery room. When Michael reports a call from a six year-old girl in a house in fire, the address is not found by the rescue team and there is no record of the call in the computer, and her boss asks her to take a vacation to seek psychiatric help. While at home, she receives another call from the girl and the disturbed Michael becomes obsessed to find the girl. She drives to Pennsylvania where she finds Bud Atherton (Damir Andrei), the owner of a newspaper in the little town Starlight, who helps her to follow her leads. Meanwhile, her husband Ash Summer (Mark Humphrey) seeks her out since Dr. Elaine Trussle (Mimi Kuzyk) has just discovered that Michael has an aneurism and needs to be urgently operated. Ash waits for new from Michael in the house of her mother Ann Hartley (Deborah Grover), who had also dedicated her life to help people, while his wife unravels a hidden secret.

"Still Small Voices" is a surprisingly great television movie, with a solid screenplay with an unpredictable twist in the end. The plot and the characters are very well developed, supported by an excellent direction and a good performance of Catherine Bell. I love movies that surprise me with unexpected conclusions, and this is one of the best Canadian movies I have ever seen. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Vozes do Passado" ("Voices from the Past")
