The town of Silent Hill is known to be a quiet resort town, but the memories of a tragic fire seven years ago still loom over it.

Having lost his wife to a fatal disease four years ago, Harry Mason is a single parent with a seven year old daughter named Cheryl, who repeatedly begged her father to take her on a trip to the town of Silent Hill. He eventually agreed.

Due to car troubles, they arrive at the outskirts of the town at nighttime, following the windy road as a police officer on a motorcycle approaches and speeds past them after taking a glance.

Shortly after, Harry spots and passes a crashed motorcycle matching the one the officer was riding. Suddenly, a shadow appears in the middle of the road before Harry's Jeep headlights shine on it, revealing the figure of a young girl. In a panic, Harry swerves to avoid the girl and crashes through the railing.

After regaining consciousness at the wheel of his wrecked vehicle, it is now daytime and Cheryl is nowhere to be seen. Harry steps out to find himself just inside the town of Silent Hill, which maintains a thick fog and is snowing out of season.

Harry calls for Cheryl and heads deeper into town to find her.
