LET’S HAVE A RIDE IN THE PLOT OF A QUIET PLACE 2
The Abbott family—wife Evelyn, husband Lee, deaf daughter Regan, boys Marcus and Beau—and other onlookers—watch as a weird, asteroid-like object hurtles toward Earth during a Little League game. The hostile extraterrestrial Death Angels attack and start killing humanity after emerging from the asteroid. The blind creatures are swift and decisive, have armoured skin, and have hypersensitive hearing that allows them to track their prey while attacking anything that makes noise. Many people on Earth have been slain by animals more than a year later. Regan devises a workaround to transmit the sounds from her cochlear implant through a handheld microphone after learning that high-frequency audio feedback renders the Death Angels vulnerable. The family seeks other survivors because their home has been destroyed. Evelyn unintentionally activates a sound alarm when she enters a gated area, alerting the animals.
