Russell Tovey from the glorious Being Human (UK) and the wonderful Sheridan Smith from Legally Blonde The Musical, in a thriller? HELL YES!!!
Taking up the mantle of Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil, the age old story of "Walk On By" puts a community in distress. If justice can't be served through the legal system a mysterious assailant will put a tower block of residents through hell in order to get them to confess to the crime they witnessed and why they chose to remain silent.
Bravery comes in many forms but cowardice is a disease...

One year later, someone has decided to take justice into their own hands. Picked off one by one, the tenants of Serenity House are under threat from a mystery sniper who has set deadly traps throughout the building keeping them prisoners in their own homes.
