The story of the film follows a family of four who must live life in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.
The story starts in 2020 as the world goes in a lockdown and blind creatures with extremely sensitive hearing search for future victims by sound. The Abbott family scavenge a local town for supplies, remaining as silent as possible and communicate with each other through sign language. The youngest of the three children, Beau, wants a toy rocket, but his father removes the batteries and says it is too loud. Regan, his older sister, gives him the toy back but beau grabs the batteries back on the way out. The sound of the toy attracts the attention of one of the creatures. His father fails to get to him quickly enough, and he is swept away by the creature. They are shown to be large, spidery creatures. Well this is what we could see in the trailer of the film.
The film shows us that the family has to survive by staying silent and it shows us that how scary silence can be. This is the film directed by Emily Blunt’s husband John Krasinski.

Emily blunt is playing the role of Evelyn Abott and has done great work while playing her role in the film.
