Narrative / 90 min
When a police officer tells you to do something, you do it. Right?
On a busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra receives a phone call from a police officer saying that a pretty young employee, Becky, has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she’s doing the right thing, Sandra commences the investigation, following instructions from the officer on the line, no matter how invasive they become. As we watch, we ask ourselves: “Why don’t they just say no?” and perhaps more troubling, “Am I certain I wouldn’t do the same?” Inspired by true events.
