Chip Linton is a shadow of his former self. Ever since the plane he was piloting crashed into Lake Champlain, taking the lives of 39 passengers with it into the watery depths. You could say Chip left part of himself there too. Known publicly as the pilot who wasn’t Sully Sullenburger, he and his wife decide to move from Pennsylvania, to the quiet small town of Bethel in New Hampshire to hopefully heal their wounds and get a fresh start. They both hope this will help Chip deal with his PTSD. Their twin girls Hallie and Garnet aren’t exactly looking forward to the move, but they know that their dad hasn’t been the same and so they are willing to do what is necessary to help him get back on track.

It seems right away there are open arms waiting to help them in any way imaginable, bringing over food, helping keep the girls occupied after school, and pretty soon they are completely enmeshed with their new circle of friends. Although, Chip’s mental health doesn’t seem to be improving, if anything it’s gotten worse, especially since he’s found a mysterious door in the basement that just happens to have 39 carriage bolts preventing it from being opened. The number isn’t lost on Chip. He’s also hearing voices; he doesn’t know one of his daughter’s has heard them as well.
