Turning the genre inside out, this original thriller concentrates on the consequences suffered by the members of a suburban community that have just witnessed two heinous crimes, rather than on the crimes themselves. A young police constable, Graham McGahan, suffers from tinnitus, a chronic hearing problem, and applies for worker's compensation. He is instead stationed at the police caravan in the town, near the crime scene. McGahan crosses paths with the various people affected by the tragedies, and will gradually uncover an unraveling nightmare of guilt and suspicion that will involve him more than he could ever have imagined. Noise deals with the response of an ordinary young man to the challenge posed when a community is affected by tragic events. The film shows we are at our best when the worst occurs.
