When a recently divorced Meg (Jodie Foster) finds a house in West Side New York with her 11-year-old daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart), they notice that the house has a 'panic room'; all steel and concrete, with monitors showing surveillance video from cameras all over the house. The previous owner, a reclusive millionaire, had it installed along with its own ventilation and communication lines.

Initially they were supposed to steal the empty house, but Junior convinces Whitaker to continue with plans despite the new residents; Meg and Sarah, who manage to sneak into the 'panic room' and at the press of a button are sealed from everything outside.
