What happens when a family is suddenly thrown into the unknown - something so totally inconceivable and fantastic that their very lives are put in danger just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time? An innocent family outing becomes an exercise in terror when a blinding light from the sky descends on the Wilsons, Bob, Dez and their young son, rendering them unconscious. They awake hours later dazed and terrified, but unable to recall excatly what happened. Following a series of increasingly bizarre visits by a pair of strange men in black suits, and the discovery that their video camera contains footage of alien-like creatures, the Wilsons realise that their abduction was no dream. Unable to get help from the authorities, they seek out Stan Mills, a former Air Force man turned UFOlogist, and with the 'men in black' close on their trail, the family moves to Stan's fortified, radar-proof compound in the hope of escaping. But these shadowy men will stop at nothing to keep the truth from being told, leading to a deadly confrontation deep in the woods, the outcome of which could change the course of human history.
