Synopsis: The Coil is a story about a man, Tyson Kraeplin (Adam Randall) who suffers from crippling agoraphobia making him a complete shut-in. As the days pass by he starts hearing noises in his home. Radios long believed dead start coming on at various times. Banging,shuffling and footsteps coming from all areas of the house, especially the attic. He FaceTime's his psychiatrist who advises him to get out of the house and take his dog for a walk. As terrifying as it seems, Tyson begrudgingly takes his dog and makes a trip to the private park that adjoins his backyard. While circling the park he notices that although it is the middle of spring, the grass is browning and there are strange markings in the field. The trees are losing all their leaves and dying. Houses look empty and the pets that live in those houses are no longer barking. The death that has fallen on all these houses are making a circle...and the circle ends right in Tyson's backyard.

To make it as simple as possible, the story takes place in one location with a small cast of characters with the main one being a younger man named Tyson Kraeplin, who has shut himself into his home due to suffering from agoraphobia. While in his home he makes his life sustainable by working as an accountant for his Uncle's law firm. The paperwork from the firm is couriered over to his home. His constant contact to the outside world are his psychiatrist, Dr. Gary Murray and his girlfriend Lilly. Both make his life more livable by keeping him grounded and encouraging his progress of slowly making his way outside. However, as he's taking on his psychologist advice he begins to hear noises within his home. Banging and clanging. Radios, long thought to be dead begin coming to life with static and eventually, music. Finally hear begins to hear footsteps in his attic. He feels as if someone or something is watching him. Especially when he attempts to sleep. When he finally heeds his doctors advice and makes his way into the private park that adjoins his home's backyard he notices that the grass is dying and has strange markings burnt into it. The trees are decaying and the birds won't make their way to the dead end of the park. Family pets have gone missing and in many cases, the families have yet to be seen. The weather changes from sun to rain almost as quickly as he looks outside. And it leaves a mist behind with a dense fog. He could almost swear that he sees the fog moving with a purpose. He sees a correlation as the death is making a circle around the park and the noises increase within his home. His home is in the dead center of the park and the patterns end at his backyard fence. Is something coming after Tyson or has 15 years of self containment done a number on his mind? What's real and what's imaginary? And if it's real...how does a man who's terrified to leave the comforts of his own home, protect himself when they're already inside?
