Death of a Telemarketer centers on smooth-talking, ace salesman Kasey (Lamorne Morris), whose shifty ways have impacted his relationship with his girlfriend, Christine (Alisha Wainwright). To prove his sincerity, Kasey buys a ring for Christine and plans to propose over a fancy dinner, but first has to win a Hunger Games-style sales commission contest to cover the ring's cost. However, Kasey loses by a slim margin to newbie employee, Barry (Woody McClain).
Undeterred, Kasey sneaks back into the call center to score one big sale by midnight, which would make him the contest's new victor. He thinks that he's found the perfect mark in Asa (Jackie Earle Haley), a customer he randomly solicits from the off-limits Do Not Call list, but it proves to be a near-fatal mistake. Asa kidnaps Kasey and forces him at gunpoint into a new game that tests Kasey's already-low ethics. Now Kasey must beat this one with flying colors if he wants to live to sell another day.
