Salman has been receiving calls from an unknown number. Nobody says anything but the calls are persistent. His mother is also receiving the same calls. Father has hearing problems and yet he seems to hear something no one else does. Each member of the family has a different explanation for what’s going on. Is it some sign, some warning, or a call from someone they know?
