Jordan was a 911 operator. one day, she made a mistake by calling back her victim when their call got cut off, causing her victim to get killed. despite being an experienced operator, Jordan was rattled and decided not to continue being an operator, transferring herself to another department where she taught new comers of how to be a helpful operator. while showing them the working environment, one of the newer operator freaked out, unable to handle a call made by Casey, a teenager abducted and trapped in a car's trunk. Jordan decided to help Casey despite her fear.
even though the story flowed in a highly predictable manner, the film managed to remain very engaging thus entertaining. we felt like we were experiencing Jordan's emotional trauma when she failed to save the first victim. for the second victim, we were practically glued to the screen. the intensity was high, with the police trying to spot the vehicle from both air and land, they missed it every single time. the situation worsened when the bad guy switched car. in the end of the film when it started showing the sad side of the bad guy, it made the film even better as his psychotic side started showing and we were convinced with his reason of abducting young girls like Casey.
