Two lonely people in New York start an affair via a live sex chat phone service, but will they ever meet?
Through a chat-line, Leroy (48) contacts Patricia (42). He presents himself as blond, blue-eyed and in his thirties. She likes his voice, he likes her laugh, so they keep on talking, telling each other about their views on life, but without divulging too many personal details – that is against the code. Gradually, their conversations deepen and their questions become more crucial whenever they’re connected: But what is true and what is false in what they subsequently reveal to each other…?
