They come at you from all sides: hustlers, scam artists, identity thieves and, yes, robocalls. They’re well organized, those robo callers. They constantly change their addresses and approaches. They often pose as IRS agents, or your credit card company but they all have one thing in common: they are out to part you from your money.
Imagine what a mine field this is for many of the elderly and other trusting people. Lives have been ruined by some of these obnoxious scams. But help is on the way. Lawmakers are working on solutions, but we all know how long that takes. In the meantime, how about a little vicarious revenge? Robocall, an award-winning feature film, takes on this subject and puts a fist in the face of the scammers. It won’t make the problem go away, but you might find some relief in this timely drama.
Robocall follows a few days in the life of G.T. Benz, a veteran and widower, yearning to see his long-absent daughter, “Trish,” before he dies. Doing his best to live out his remaining days in “peace and dignity,” he fights a daily battle with internet crooks, and malign door-bangers all ramping up the normal stress of loneliness and aging. Give it a look. You might just feel better for it.
Robocall is now available ITunes!
