On a particularly busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra (Ann Dowd) receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (newcomer Dreama Walker) has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she's only doing what's right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become. The second feature from director Craig Zobel (GREAT WORLD OF SOUND), COMPLIANCE recounts a true story in which the line between legality and reason is hauntingly blurred.
