An asylum, where there is no one to talk to, and nothing to touch. Juliette, a girl who has been isolated for 264 days. All she can hear are the echos of the screaming in the asylum. Echos that are because of her touch, a touch of death. Isolated, until a roommate arrives, only to be immune to her touch. Adam, the one who is able to hold her hand, without nearly fading.
