A writer traveling to promote his unpublished novel enters into a bizarre phone relationship with a mysterious woman in this cellular love story based on Davey Rothbart's autobiographical GQ article of the same name. Davy Mitchell (Brian Geraghty) is a writer who has yet to realize his full potential. In order to raise awareness about his latest manuscript, Davy hits the road with his younger brother Sean (Kel O'Neill) and begins performing readings for small groups across the country. One night, while sitting in a lonely hotel, Davy's phone rings unexpectedly. The voice on the other end of the line belongs to Nicole, and before long Davy and Nicole have established a unique bond despite the fact that they've never actually met face to face. The more Davy gets to know Nicole, the happier he becomes. But when the time finally comes to meet his long-distance love interest, the itinerant writer realizes that before he can truly be honest with Nicole, he must first start being honest with himself. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Far from perfect, but a welcome reminder of why indie film-making is important. A story you have not seen before, told in a bold and honest way, willing to deal with complex emotions and no answers. It starts when a painfully shy writer on a pathetic book tour gets what seems to be a wrong number a call from a sexy sounding strange woman that morphs into hot phone s-x (all in one long multi minute take). The odd development of this intense, mysterious ongoing phone relationship, and how it effects Davy"s lonely life makes up the rest of the story, often going in delightfully or disturbingly unexpected directions (which I won't spoil). There are some real weak spots. Some of the actors are not quite up to the subtlety of what Averez is going after. No one is bad but great actors in certain choice roles could have brought out much more. There also a cinematic cheat that is so obvious, and so central to the story that it alienated me at a key moment. But I am still glad I saw this.
This was one strange movie to say the least, If you are looking for weird and confusing, this is the movie to watch.The movie details seem interesting and intriguing. But the movie moves so very slow and at times you are going what the heck am I watching. I don't know hov long the movie was, but it was an hour to long. It dragged in places.The ending is very surprising and catches you off guard. After watching it I all I could think, was they needed some serious therapy.I just don't see how anyone can get sucked in to a relationship over the phone, with someone you don't know or have ever seen. The phone rings in your hotel room, pick up and start having a connversation, that has you master bating This keeps continuing throughout the whole trip.He knows nothing about this woman. She just keeps calling him. She will not meet him or give him her number, until the very end where he meet the woman on the other end of the phone.
