On the night of October 23rd, 1980, Andrew Wilson murdered his family. Following his arrest Andrew was asked why he did it. His only explanation: his Friend told him to. 30 years later, Jess Yauch, daughter of the sole survivor of the Wilson family massacre, travels to the farmhouse her mother once called home to find a box of recordings left behind by her family; recordings that may hold the truth of why Andrew did what he did. As Jess sorts through these auditory relics of the family she never knew, she finds herself closer and closer to answers that may change her life forever.
