Tonight not even the bed covers can protect you.

Noah Collins is an ordinary seven-year-old boy with a history of sleepless nights, but tonight he will discover what keeps him awake at night is not imaginary. The cause of Noah’s night fears is hell itself.

As young children we have all had sleepless nights where we have hidden beneath our bedsheets for protection from the monsters of our imagination, for Noah, the night is a scary place.

Afraid to go to his parents for protection because he has been accused of “Crying Wolf” too many times, he has to stay in his bedroom alone and face the monsters that lurk in the dark recesses. Tonight Noah has to face the biggest fear of his life so far.

No child should have to face this evil alone.
