A few weeks after his brother Danny’s funeral, Owen Davidson gets a call from his brother’s landlord Edgar. Danny left behind his personal audio recorder, an item Owen was eager to both return to his mother, and to listen to himself. Owen’s curiosity gets the better of him. As he listens to the recorder while sitting in Danny’s old kitchen, he soon learned of his brother’s apparent neurosis, brought on by a Halloween night summoning exercise. As Owen internalizes his brother’s fears, doubts, suffering, and suicide, he begins to wonder whether something sinister was indeed trying to get out of the basement… and whether it was still there.
