April 21, 2012 · Short Film ·  Released: April 2012

Louise Kavanagh is sitting in a coffee shop alone, awaiting the arrival of her boyfriend. As she grows increasingly anxious, she decides to call him. Little does she know that this action will set in motion a series of phonecalls, which will expose a web of crime and deceit – interwoven between the lives of seemingly ordinary everyday people. Oblivious to the illicit dealings of her loved ones, she presses the call button. Calling depicts the destruction and demise of a modern family and their surrounding relationships, through a mixture of bad luck and bad timing, on top of bad life choices.
