Sandra Bullock, who plays the mother, Malorie Hayes, tries to protect her kids from seeing the mysterious spirit by escaping the possessed world in search for a safe life. The spirit metamorphoses into your worst fears. If you look at the force, it makes you want to commit spontaneous suicide. Malorie escapes and seeks shelter with a group of people to figure out a solution to stay alive. While they try to escape, the victims of the spirit are deceitful and they claim they see something phenormal and want the whole world to see it.

Malorie goes to find food with other survivors, but ends up finding birds in a cage that have survived. Since the birds can sense the supernatural beings, she uses the birds that are in a box as a warning signal for when danger is near, When the end of the world comes, the only way to survive is to remain sightless regardless of temptation from others.
