Eleanor and Mary are two friends having a sleepover. While in Eleanor's room, the girls hear a distant scream from someone in the neighborhood. Although surprised, they ignore it.
One night, sitting alone in her living room, Eleanor wonders why there have been so many funerals lately, in fact, they were to attend one the next day as well. She cant figure out why so many people have been dying.
A few days later, Eleanor and her parents attend the a funeral of a neighbor—the third one that month. As they leave the church, Father Kelly complains that not as many people go to church anymore.
The next night, Mary is at Eleanor's house for another sleepover, and this time, they hear a scream that sounds like it coming from next door. Eleanor sprinted out of the house to see if everything is fine, but it wasn't. Mrs Smith, their elderly, neighbor was dead on the floor with a knife in her heart. Standing over her was Father Kelly.
The priest warns Eleanor that if she tells anyone, she will be next. Terrified, the girl stays silent.
Father Kelly's DNA was found on Mrs. Smith's corpse during the autopsy, and he was sentenced to 35 years in jail. He revealed his motive for killing so many people was for them to have funerals in his church so more people would attend. He still feels God told him to commit the crime.
