Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home. As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence.

After recovering and realizing his mistakes, Ken returned to Tekong Island to continue his Basic Military Training (BMT) and to prove himself. However, Ken's change of attitude immediately drew the dislike and mockery from his Section mates led by Lobang. They felt that he was emulating Wayang King to flatter the commanders so that he could stand out. Their misunderstandings deepened despite Ken's attempts to explain.

At the same time, Ip Man's girlfriend left him for another guy. Ip Man sought help from Lobang and his Section mates to hatch a plan for revenge on the couple. The new boyfriend informed his gang, and a fight erupted between the gang and Lobang and his Section mates. Wayang King was the first to escape, but Ken hesitated and stayed behind to defend his Section mates. When questioned by the Commanders, Ken defended his actions as he could not just run away while his Section mates were being beaten up.

After this incident, what else could be in store for Ken? How would the antagonism between Ken, Wayang King, Lobang and the rest of the Section mates be resolved? In such an environment of mutual distrust and sabotage, would they be able to shake hands and work together, to face their greatest challenge?
