On the day of her birthday, the young engineer Samantha "Sam" Walczak is assigned by her father to conduct a structural analysis of an eight-floor building. One hundred and twenty units are located in the middle of nowhere and require demolition. Sam finds four tenants, having received the eviction notice, but are still living in the building: the caretaker Mary and her teenage son Jimmy, Burnett and lady Denise. Mary lodges Sam in apartment 208, furnished as the former dwellers have never collected the furniture. Jimmy befriends Sam and advises certain "rules" to be adhered to. Sam is haunted during the nights by ghostly noises and discovers that the building has dreadful secrets. She investigates further and finds that the successful architect, Joseph Malestrazza, built the place following the principles of the Egyptian pyramids. Twelve years ago, one revengeful worker walled dwellers in, including Mary's beloved husband, entombing the victims in cement. Over time weird things happen to Sam and she believes that Jimmy might be playing a prank on her, until she finds out the shocking secret of Malestrazza and his building.
Some secrets are left buried.

More Movie Taglines:
- Some secrets are left buried.
- Julie: [first lines - wakes up in narrow space] Dad? [starting to panic] Julie: Dad. Dad. Daddy! Dad!
Jimmy: The lights go off every 6 minutes. You know, save electricity and stuff. If you spend a day in the halls, you have to hit the switch 240 times.
Jimmy: How do you know when someone really loves you? Mary: That girl really had an effect on you, didn't she? Jimmy: Tell me. Mary: When you're willing to sacrifice everything for someone. There's no great love without it.
Joseph Malestrazza: The Light House of Alexandria, the Temple of Artemis, destroyed. The Gardens of Babylon, the Colossus of Rhodes, destroyed. The Seven Wonders of the World, demolished, burned. All except the Great Pyramids and my buildings. Because both the Egyptians and myself inured human beings in our foundations. All that counts as energy. The world found its light only through the birth pangs of agony and murder. Suffering is a journey to purity and death, and the midwife to eternal existence.
[last lines] Sam Walczak: In his lifetime Malestrazza designed 27 buildings, all of which are still standing. This one he called his masterpiece. There are no current plans to demolish it.
- The glowing symbol in the building lobby, made up of solid and broken lines, is the I Ching hexagram for Persevering. It is made by combining the symbols for Thunder and Wind.
