She was also shot but somehow managed to survive. Haunted by the incident and a strange dream that keeps coming over and over, she then decides to uncover all the mystery by herself to find out the reason of what she has been going through.

The Positive: “The Witness” gets off to a scary start and ends in an edge-of-your-seat thriller.
