Someone's murdering young girls, and the killer, who documents his crimes in a video diary (seemingly offering a trail to his eventual apprehension), has become obsessed with the fact that Joe has observed him from afar. The story deepens when Joe, shaken by the images of death that have been his life, seeks a respite from his work.
He meets Lora and they connect, partly because he is somewhat adept with American Sign Language. As their bond grows, they recognize that they both suffer from the same malady. Lora is experiencing haunting forebodings of murder; Joe sees flashbacks from horrific crimes.
As the ominous shadow of a determined killer draws closer, Joe and Lora must reckon with their inner demons and the threat of a violent end.
