Synopsis: I’m Here is a post apocalyptic story about a phone booth in the desert where survivors can talk to people they have lost in the “storm”.
Angel leads Penny (9) through a very bleak landscape, to the place where she hopes to find some answers.
While they journey, other people visit the phone booth hoping to speak to their loved ones.
Kelsey Caesar (Angel)
