Two people feeling alienated from the world around them on a given day, find a chance connection through a mistaken phone call. During the course of their conversation something happens that not only creates an emotional shift for one of the characters but speeds up the connection between the two, allowing a vulnerability that could open up possibilities for them both.

"In this film I wanted to look at random-ness and opportunity, to create a ‘slice of circumstance’ situation that can occur every day, one which you can either choose to explore or leave for what it is – a coincidence.
Two individuals find themselves in a situation where the sound of each others voice is the only indicator they have – should they explore the moment, or retreat? As their first random tenuous connection stretches to breaking point, they are abruptly drawn together by an external event.
As an audience we have the luxury of seeing into their lives, homes and situations on this particular day. We get a sense of similarity before the characters themselves do, but just how much these two people want to be known to each other is the question – as they struggle to balance vulnerability and risk.
Redial presents a God’s-eye view of paths crossing."
