PLOT SUMMARY

Two guys are drinking, smoking and making prank calls. Little do they know that their fun night is about to take a big turn when they get an unexpected visit from two strangers.

More details:

The short film started with the question “What would happen if two guys who have fun by anonymously calling random people and making fun of them, get visited in the middle of the night by the people they called?” From there it transformed into a movie about violence (in its numerous forms: verbal, psychological, physical) and about consequences.

Hiding behind the anonymity of a phone call, two guys play a game in which they mock random people. Unfortunately for them and fortunately for their victims, by chance, their address is found. The two guys get visited by a couple that doesn’t seem to have peaceful intentions.

Their meeting becomes a game of power in which, gradually, the boys turn from abusers to victims and the strange couple from victims to abusers.
