According to the official synopsis, “CLOSE CALLS features a troubled teen girl, Morgan [Phipps], who is forced to stay home and tend to her crazy grandma [Duley] after being grounded by her father. But when Daddy leaves for a dinner date, Morgan’s paranoia heightens as she starts receiving several disturbing phone calls while dealing with Gramma. Between all the phone calls, the drugs she has taken, and surprise visits from some unexpected guests, Morgan now thinks everyone around her is out to kill her. And to make matters worse…she keeps forgetting to give Gramma her meds.” Look for more on CLOSE CALLS at this site soon!
