Don’t Breathe 2 Plot

In the previous movie, Norman was portrayed as a highly-skilled assassin who took down multiple young targets despite being a blind person. It was an exciting movie and presented the viewers with the personality of this assassin.

Now in the second part, the movie starts with a focus on an empty street with a house burning on the side. We see a little girl walking down the road, completely all alone. 8 years after the incident, she was living with Norman.

The little girl didn’t go to school and did any other activities that kids of her age do. Normal didn’t want her to know about her past since it would cause her some trauma. Instead, he made a story that he is her father and that they lost their house in a fire.

Raylan’s Invasion

After adopting her, Norman started training Phoenix in martial arts. One day, Raylan invaded Norman’s house with his gang. Raylan was an organ dealer and he had supposedly come to the house for similar reasons.

Norman catches the sniff of Raylan and his men and uses his combat skills to subdue them one by one. The old assassin is too much for them as he gets rid of each individual. However, the numbers are still on the side of Raylan.

In the last moments of the fight, Raylan reveals that he didn’t come here to hurt anyone. Instead, he came here to take Phoenix with her who is her biological daughter. He takes Phoenix with her and leaves.

Josephine’s Situation

Raylan gives Tara an option to leave or stay. She decides to leave but stumbles upon Josephine who poses as his mother. Josephine was the key person in the development of drugs that Raylan’s gang was selling and she needed a heart transplant to survive.

The plan was to bring in Tara and have her give her heart to Josephine. The doctor was ready to perform the surgery however, Norman barges into the house and creates chaos.
