In 2007's The Great World of Sound, director Craig Zobel used true-life events to tell the story of unsuspecting people who were conned out of their money in the hopes of becoming recording artists. Compliance paints a similar picture of trust and manipulation, but with much greater consequences.

 A manager at a fast food restaurant recieves a phone call from a man claiming to be a police detective informing her that one of her employees has purportedly stolen from a customer. He instructs her to detain the employee in her office and to search her thoroughly. What follows is a story so outrageous that it's shocking to believe that it's actually true. Starring the terrific Pat Healy (The Innkeeepers, The Great World of Sound) as the menace on the end of the phone.
