Sriyani, an idealistic and overtaxed social worker of Sri Lankan descent, is a counselor at a telephone help line. She has built her life around helping others, but always at the expense of those closest to her.

So who is going to defend Sriyani when she is hypnotized by a caller on her phone tonight?

RECEIVER is a chamber horror film about toxic masculinity, isolation, and the commodification of empathy.
