A deaf woman named Kate Siegel decided to live in seclusion in a house in the middle of the woods with her cat, so she can use the gift of solitude to aid her writing. One day, her friend Sarah visits her at home to return one of Madison's books. She explains to Madison how much she enjoys reading the books and that she's able to imagine the writing playing out in her head like a movie. Later on that evening, Sarah is chased by a man in a mask back to Madison's property. In the front of the house, the masked man stabs Sarah to death. The man realizes that Madison is deaf and takes the opportunity to enter the house and steal her phone. In an attempt to toy with her, he proceeds to send messages to her laptop while she's using it with images of her that he just shot. She realizes what's happening and rushes to lock the doors before he can get back in. It's now up to Madison to fight for her life with no way of calling out for help.
