It was as good as sealing yourself into a dungeon.
Walled in, with nowhere to go but your own doom.
― Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Phoenix, 1979: In a controversial move, the city has replaced male police officers with female civilians to man the emergency phones, at half the pay. This is the story of three of those women.

Catalina: In her first-ever job, civilian new-hire Catalina can finally escape the suffocating control of her powerful father, but it’s a jump from the frying pan into the fire, as her tender youth and bleached-blonde good looks make her a magnet for the uniforms whose intentions are anything but honorable.

Marlette: Socially inept and sexually repressed, high-school dropout Marlette still lives with her parents at twenty-three. Then life looks decidedly brighter when she starts her new job with the police department…until the obscene phone calls begin.

Deirdre: Flat broke, young mother Deirdre’s cross-country manhunt for her two-timing husband leads her to hot, hellish Phoenix and a life-saving job offer from the Phoenix PD. But the job description said nothing about sleazy sergeants and pot-smoking cops with foot-humping fetishes.

They passed the written test, the interview, even the polygraph. Now they must pass the twelve long weeks of training that will either make or break them, all within the oppressive confines of a windowless, smoke-filled basement, home of the PPD’s Communications Bureau.

Welcome to the dungeon, ladies.
