Plot Summary: After a tragic accident leaves high school senior Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf) fatherless, the boy begins to act out. A serious outburst of anger in school leads to his expulsion and a court-ordered house arrest. To ensure that he doesn’t stray too far from the walls of his home, Kale is given an ankle bracelet that monitors his movement. His mother Julie (Carrie-Anne Moss) does her best to support the two of them and attempts to reach out to her confused son, with little success. Bored, Kale turns to his binoculars and video camera to explore a new hobby: voyeurism. With the help of his best friend Ronnie (Aaron Yoo), Kale begins spying on his neighbors. He soon meets the attractive new girl-next-door Ashley (Sarah Roemer), who joins in on the fun. When Kale hears reports of mysterious abductions in the neighborhood, he begins to suspect his strange neighbor Turner (David Morse). Further surveillance and even obsession with his subject, transform Kale’s moderate suspicions into outright fear and panic. He becomes convinced that Turner is a murderer. Unfortunately, he is stuck at home and without any evidence to aid him, even his mother fails to believe him. With modern technology at his disposal and his friends Ronnie and Ashley willing to help out, Kale begins to search for evidence that will incriminate Turner, all without leaving his front yard.
