For a Good Time, Call...

Joker
In 1947, when the maps of India and Pakistan were being drawn, an oversight ensured that the village of Paglapur didn't find a place in either country. The village had the distinction of housing the largest mental asylum in the region and in the melee that ensued during partition, the asylum inmates broke loose, drove away the villagers and established their own republic in Paglapur. And that's how it stayed for the next 60 years! While the world outside changed, Paglapur remained isolated, with no electricity, television or sanity.

Now, decades after the world forgot this village, a NASA scientist of Indian origin, Agastya and his beautiful wife find themselves on the road to Paglapur. Agastya is working on a top secret project for creating a device to communicate with aliens.

So why is he in a village whose colourful inhabitants include a man who speaks in gibberish, another who thinks he is a lamp post and everyone else who think Mahatma Gandhi is still around, fighting for independence? And more importantly, what are they going to do that will soon turn the universe's spotlight on this forgotten village?

The Tall Man
Once a thriving mining community, present day Cold Rock is a ghost town clouded by an unthinkable tragedy haunting those who remain. Children are disappearing without a trace. Superstitious locals speak in hushed tones of the "tall man," a dark and mysterious figure who may indeed be responsible for the abductions or simply the invention of the imaginative minds of the frightened townsfolk.

Julia Denning (Jessica Biel), the local nurse and a rational voice of reason doesn't believe the urban legend. Until the night David disappears.

Driven by unwavering maternal instinct, Julia pursues the dark figure who abducted her son through the rugged mountain terrain. The chase begins and with it the quest for answers. Who is The Tall Man? And where are the missing children?

For Ellen
Aspiring rock star Joby Taylor has wanted nothing more than to "make it", having flirted with fame but never crossed over into true success. In the midst of a low period in his life, he agrees to sign divorce papers with his estranged wife in order to see money from the sale of their home, only to discover that by signing the papers, he will forfeit all custody of his six-year-old daughter, Ellen.

With a good-natured lawyer unable to make headway in reversing the decision, and a girlfriend that represents an era of his life that he might be ready to graduate from, Joby negotiates a visit with his daughter to explore whether he is able to walk away from his child, and whether it might be too late for reconciliation.
