U R a Dial Tone

Season 2017 Episode 4 | 10m 15s

Sylvia loves her job as a sign language interpreter, where she makes phone calls for deaf people. Sure, sometimes she gets too emotionally involved and a computer glitch sucks her into her callers’ lives, but who doesn’t break the rules every now and then? When Sylvia’s company starts monitoring her every word, she has to figure out how to hold back, or risk losing everything.
