Jennifer Winter is deaf and had great hopes for a cochlear implant but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. She does begin to hear voices however, whispers more than language, and begins to frantically write what seems to be binary code. Robert Vitale, who works at the hospital, explains binary code to her and when he enters the data on his computer, the result is a message, apparently from an alien being. Jennifer's husband is concerned by his wife's actions and her doctor thinks she might be having a psychotic episode. Jennifer and Robert believe she's received a call for help. Written by
