The post-apocalyptic tale officially described as follows:
Carnegie award-winning author Patrick Ness brings a bold cinematic experience beyond imagination. Todd Hewitt lives on the distant planet New World – a new hope for humanity until it is hit by "The Noise", a virus that inflicts immersive visions of all thoughts. The cacophony drives many crazy until Todd makes a hidden and silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola, who may be the key to unlocking the secrets of the New World's many layers. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white joint adventure on an unexplored planet – trying to escape and hide in an environment where every thought is heard, every movement is seen – while both discover the truth about the lives they left back and the spectacular world they learned to call home.
