One day, Kate hears voices while she's in the graveyard putting flowers on her grandmother's grave. It was her sickly mother's request; she fulfilled it before she went to school after her visit to her mother's hospital bed. Of course she just thinks that the whispers are someone talking, since the halls are really hollow and you can hear just about anything from the graves. Well, when the days pass by she starts to hear phone conversations that talk about things that haven't happened yet, so she goes and talks to her mom, who is recovering from her illness. That same night, though, Kate hears a phone conversation that reveals a terrifying future.
