Three years ago, James Sunderland's wife became seriously ill and passed away. James tried to pull himself together and resume his life after the loss but struggled to get back on his feet. The emotional pain and emptiness left James in a constant state of mourning. Then one day, a cryptic letter arrives signed by Mary, the same name of his late wife. In the letter Mary writes "Silent Hill, our sanctuary of memories...I will be waiting for you there."
James is confused and disturbed by the letter. He questions if Mary is somehow really alive or if someone is playing a hoax on him. "I still don't believe it. The dead can't send letters, yet I came here to see Mary..."
"Our sanctuary of memories - what does that mean? This place is too full of memories..."
Shrouded in mystery and driven by the desire to uncover the truth, James sets off into the world of Silent Hill...As the fog grows thicker, James realizes that the town is nearby.
"The only way to get to the centre of town is through this tunnel, but there must have been an accident or something because the entrance is blocked. But wait...the map shows a single path through the forest leads to the town. Looks like the only way to get to the town is to take this path on foot. I can't see anyone in this thick fog, or should I say I don't feel anyone. I see a run-down building nearby. There's no-one inside. I am all alone in the mirrors reflection. I look at the man in the mirror and mutter a question..."
"Mary...could you really be in this town?"
