The movie adapts the story of the original Silent Hill video game that launched in 1999. Rose Da Silva (Radha Mitchell) has adopted a young girl called Sharon (Jodelle Ferland). Every night, Sharon sleepwalks around the house and has vivid nightmares about a long-abandoned town called Silent Hill.
Desperate to help her adopted daughter, Rose takes Sharon to Silent Hill, hoping the trip will help get rid of her nightmares. Once the pair arrive, however, things go wrong as Rose crashes the car and blacks out. When she awakes, she finds Sharon is gone and quickly sets out to find her. Rose quickly learns that Silent Hill isn’t all it seems and must confront dark forces if she ever wants to see her daughter again.
