In the twilight of the 1950s, on one fateful night in New Mexico, a young, winsome switchboard operator Fay (Sierra McCormick) and charismatic radio DJ Everett (Jake Horowitz) discover a strange audio frequency that could change their small town and the future forever. Dropped phone calls, AM radio signals, secret reels of tape forgotten in a library, switchboards, crossed patchlines and an anonymous phone call lead Fay and Everett on a scavenger hunt toward the unknown.

Directed by Andrew Patterson
Screenplay by James Montague and Craig W. Sanger
Release Date - Theatrical soon from Amazon

Got to watch a screener of this for Indie Spirit Awards. I loved it. It's rough in places and doesn't do what you'd think it'd do, but it's a fascinating experience. It takes a lot of unconventional shots; sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Heartily recommend.

Does this mean it's not eligible for Xixax awards this year?
