The film is the English-language feature debut of writer/director Pascal Laugier (Martyrs, House of Voices) and stars Jessica Biel as a nurse living in a small town where children have gone missing over the years. When her own child goes missing, a desperate chase begins, leading her to confront the secret of the identity of the Tall Man and what happens to the children.
