(mbc.net) Jessica Alba portraysSydney Wells, a renowned classical violinist who has been blind since the age of five.  Her sight is restored however after undergoing a cornea transplant.  While the procedure was successful it proved psychologically daunting; soon afterward Sydney began to see mysterious silhouettes and visions of fire.

She deduces that the corneas' donor had died in a tragic accident, and that identifying the individual could help alleviate the apparitions.  Sydney's search leads her to Mexico, where she discovers the donor's identity and the nature of her death.  But to end the frightening visions the musician must make a difficult sacrifice.

The Eye won a Teen Choice Award.  The picture was a commercial success, earning $56 million at the box office -- nearly five times its $12 million budget.
