Out of the blue, a mysterious stalker sneaks in their home and bugs it with microphones and cameras positioned in order to cover the whole house. When Amy vanishes and leaves a handwritten letter to James, he suspects that someone has broken in his home. He calls the police, but the police officer does not give credit to him. Weird things happen in the house and James becomes paranoid without realizing that his movements are seen by the stalker. His obsession to discover what might have happened to Amy leads the family to a tragic end.

Hey, this was your idea.

- Give me your key.

- You don't have yours?

- Uh-uh

- Here, I got it.

Babe, that is the most obvious

place in the world, OK?

Luckily we got nothing

worth stealing.

Let's do it.

Don't run so fast.

I don't understand.

What's going on?

Why did you set the alarm?

I didn't set it.

- But I don't want to go running.

- I didn't set it, Amy.

Well, a f***ing elf must have set it.

What are these?


Christ, Amy.

Aww man...

This is really not cool.

I got up at 5 in the morning...

Just gotta help me out here.

Did someone send this to you?

To me?

Yeah. One of your little undergrad students? Or

the professor, what-his-face with the nose-hairs?

- No, I highly doubt it.

- Because I didn't make it.

OK James, you have so much music,

every time I walk into your office,

you are downloading something.

I don't even make CDs anymore.

OK. So what do you think? Somebody

just made a CD and put it in the car?

Wasn't this car door locked?

Yes? OK

So all I know is that I didn't make it.

I didn't make it either, Amy.

So made it?

Isn't it weird to you, at all?

Yes, I don't know, maybe.

You... You forget things sometimes.

What's that supposed to mean?

Nothing, I'm just saying that you

forget things sometimes. You know?

What? Like when I drink?

James ... All I'm saying is that I bet

all of this music is right

on your computer.

No... No...

Wait, what's that?

- Are those the same songs?

- What?

- See? I told you.

- What is this, your idea of a joke?

- What, you think that I put those on there?

- I know I sure as hell didn't.

James, you have 8,000 songs on your

computer. You probably just forgot.

You think I have nothing better to do

than to come in to your office,

sneak around and make a mix CD?

Honestly, I don't know what it

is you do here all day Amy.

You've been working on this afghan

embroidery thesis for 7 years...

Or what is it eight?

You're an a**hole.

- Relax, I was joking.

- No you're not.

Hey, come on,

help me figure this out.

- Nasty little sh*t.

- Amy, please.



Come on, Amy.

Is that you?


Hey, you home?


- Katherine, it's James.

- Yeah, what's up?

- Is Amy there with you?

- No, why would she be here?

- Are you sure?

- Of course I'm sure.

Did she, ah...

say she was going away at all?

- No...

- She didn't?


I got this note from her,

saying that she

... needed to clear her head.

- Why?

- She didn't say.

Did you guys have a fight

or something?

No. We...

We didn't have a fight.

- Is she mad at you?

- Not that I know of.

Not that you know of.

What does that mean?

It means what it means,

not that I know of.

Well, then James,

I don't know where she is.

OK. But if you talk to her,

can you tell her to call me?

... Please. I'm worried.

- What are you talking about?

- Can you just do that?

- Fine.

- Thank you.

Hi, you've reached Amy's cell.

Leave a message.




Amy, is that you?

Hey kitty, you scared me,

I thought I left you outside.

Come here.



He likes the oldies.

Who ... likes the oldies?

Whoever made this.

- You like this kind of stuff.

- I like everything.

You really didn't, as some

kinda joke or something?

Is this funny?

- Did she pack a bag?

- A bag was packed.

Ok. So there you go.

She's... she's clearing her head.

She's taking a vacation.

From what?


- You gotta admit you're not always the ...

- What?

I don't know.

I don't think Amy made this CD.

- Who did then?

- I don't know.

You think somebody's screwing

with your head?

I don't know.
