Cast & Crew
Todd Hewitt lives on the distant planet of New World-a new hope for humanity until struck by "The Noise," a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones' every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola, who may be the key to unlocking New World's many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet - trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen -as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they've learned to call home.
