Summary
Rose cannot accept the medical diagnosis that her daughter, who suffers nightmarish trances, is going insane. Over the protests of her husband, Rose flees with their child, Sharon, to the town of Silent Hill. There, Rose is hoping that Sharon's trances can be explained. It is revealed that the town had been evacuated thirty years earlier due to an unstoppable, still burning underground coal fire. A local motorcycle cop ends up pursuing Rose and Sharon into the outskirts of the abandoned and cordoned off town on a rainy night, where they both suffer simultaneous crashes and black out. Rose awakens to find that everything is lit by an unearthly, luminous mist and that her daughter is gone from her SUV. Following what she thinks is her daughter's silhouette all over town, Rose is lured to a group of horrific creatures and blacks out again to the sound of a wailing emergency siren
