Twist of Fate
On her way to a client’s house, interior designer Kelly (Cassie Steele) gets trapped in her rental car. Luckily, her rental comes equipped with Autocall, the navigation system that alerts an emergency operator that there’s been an accident. While emergency operator Jeff (Ryan Kennedy) attempts to keep Kelly calm, an instantaneous bond forms. Once the paramedics arrive, the call ends, but neither one can shake the thought of one another. Determined to help Kelly find true love, good friend Rachel (Karissa Tynes), tries to track down Jeff.
