Summary: Over three months in 2020, most of Earth’s human and animal populations have been wiped out by sightless extraterrestrial creatures with hypersensitive hearing that attack anything that makes noise and have indestructible armoured skin. The Abbott family — wife Evelyn, husband Lee, congenitally deaf daughter Regan, and sons Marcus and Beau — silently scavenge for supplies in a deserted town. While out in the open, the family communicates with American Sign Language (ASL). Four-year-old Beau is drawn to a battery-operated space shuttle toy, but his father takes it away. Regan returns the toy to Beau, who also takes the batteries his father removed. Beau activates the shuttle when the family is walking home through the woods, near a bridge. Its noise makes him an instant target for a nearby creature. Lee tries to rescue him, but fails to reach him in time.
