Daphne Zuniga, Joely Fisher, Michelle Hurd, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Barry Watson, Jonathan Slavin, Devon Gray, and singing and acting legend Connie Stevens, get up close and personal when they lose cell reception for a weekend.
In a world where everything is virtual, it's hard to remain present. From games, texts, blogs, and calls, the surge of communication—while comforting—can become overwhelming. During another tumultuous Thanksgiving holiday, one family suffers a tragedy: loss of all cell phone reception throughout the house. The sudden media blackout forces the clan to face all their crises head-on—and uncover a few ugly truths along the way. With a perfect blend of comedy, drama, and a little sci-fi, director Russell Brown leads an ensemble cast through the drought of technology to reveal how deep we're drowning, and how a little face-to-face can go a long way. - Alexis Costanza
