Synopsis

Chris (30s) is plagued by a mysterious noise – The Hum. Failed by traditional healthcare, he turns to disgraced Prof. McAven (60s), fired from university because of his unorthodox techniques. Together with McAven's daughter Alice (30s), a psychologist, the three eventually discover the source of the Hum. The Afterlife. As the veil between the two worlds becomes dangerously thin, Chris is forced to confront past traumas before the Hum can reach its peak and kill him.
