Plot Spoiler: In the opening scene Isabel's (Juanita Ringeling) child is taken in an odd abduction case. Two years later after an attempted suicide, Isabel and her husband Josh (Cristobal Tapia Montt) live in an isolated fortress home. Josh is conducting a shortwave experiment with Thomas (Kyle Davis) attempting to contact aliens through hidden signals within the waves. Isabel hears and sees things related to the experiment. Things don't go as planned.

There seemed to be some plot continuity issues. They were talking about contacting aliens, but in reality they knew they were doing something different all along, so the conversations didn't make any sense. I still didn't figure out why the hostility either. Characters were so-so.

Guide: F-word. Solo sex. No nudity.
