Description: Written and directed by Edward Robles of Here Be DragonsDispatch follows a small-town police dispatcher (Martin StarrSilicon Valley) on the worst night of this life.  What begins as a domestic violence call quickly cascades into a host of attacks across town, and the local police are struggling to keep up. Every new call sheds light on Ted's inner torments and pushes him closer toward danger. 

Police dispatchers are trained to see with sound. Every door slam, tire screech, and piercing scream paints a picture in their minds. The visual world of Dispatch unfolds inside Ted's imagination as he wades through the soundscape, advising terrified callers and listening for clues. Ted yearns to be at the scene of the crime, to be given the chance to really help someone. 

He's about to get what he wished for.
