When a veteran 911 call center Operator’s daughter is held hostage, she’s left desperate with no choice but to follow a caller’s rules; send a message through dispatch for all Los Angeles police and fire units to scatter to remote destinations where they are met with chaos; cars crashing, explosions, and gunfire. Not knowing who or why, the one thing Amanda knows is if she fails to secretly collaborate with one of the police, her ex-husband – she’ll be the sole person responsible for facilitating the biggest crime of the century. Now she must race the clock to make the choice of her life – save the city – or save her daughter.


“Operator” opens in Philippine cinemas October 21 from Solar Pictures Philippines.
