Curtis (Michael Shannon) has a good life. He has a steady job on a drilling crew, where he works with friends. He loves his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) and his young daughter Hannah (Tova Stewart), who is deaf. They have their own home, enough savings to go on vacation, and even the possibility that surgery could restore Hannah's hearing.
Then the visions and nightmares start. During the day, Curtis imagines seeing massive storms on the horizon, muddy brown rain, birds flying in unusual patterns, and attacks from faceless people. At night, he has nightmares of storms and attacks that impact his behavior. (For example, after dreaming that his dog bites his arm, Curtis keeps the dog outside the house.)
