Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is kidnapped with a sadistic killer and held in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. Whenever a disconnected phone on your wall starts to ring, Finney finds out he can hear the voices from the killer’s previous victims. And they’re dead focused on ensuring what went down for them does not occur to Finney.
