In a quiet cafe, well-meaning Jean answers a stranger's incessantly ringing cell phone. But the stranger is dead and Jean's future is now irrevocably connected to this stranger's complicated past.

Jean just wants a peaceful moment in a café sipping her coffee, but the man next to her won’t answer his phone. After it rings three times in a row Jean has had enough. She answers the call. Then she discovers he’s dead. Suddenly Jean is entwined in the lives of his grieving friends and family while uncovering a whole lot of mysterious loose ends that need to be tied up. This bizarre and biting comedy explores contemporary connection in a technologically obsessed world.
