After a neighbour's flippant remark plants the seed of paranoia, the erratic Geoffrey discovers an odd but real feature on his answering machine that allows him to spy on himself.
Room Tone is a black comedy about an obsessive-compulsive interior decorator, Geoffrey (Jed Brophy). Geoffrey has difficulty managing his unruly dog .Pockets., his nosey neighbours and his live in partner. His career is in danger as his abusive boss cares only about profit and is frustrated with Geoffrey’s sales performance. His friends think he’s losing the plot, and the passing comment from his lecherous neighbour, Syd (Jeffrey Thomas), sends Geoffrey spiralling out of control.
At a client’s home, Geoffrey stumbles upon the odd, but real feature on his answering machine which, when dialled in, allows him to hear the sounds emitting from his own home. At first, it seems innocuous enough: wind, a dog bark. However, the events at his house escalate.. dangling keys, footsteps, heavy petting, rough sex! Things get out of hand and Geoffrey heads home for a surprising revelation.
