In the darkness of night, the cargo train endures a spectacular crash before it reaches its final destination; the cargo and its fate remains a mystery. A mysterious supernatural force is now lurking in this normal town – is it a force for good or evil? What does it want? Strange, unexplainable things begin to happen. A shadowy government agency arrives – for what purpose? Do they want to capture the force, protect the town, or make sure the witnesses are kept quiet? Our ordinary family is trapped in the middle of these extraordinary events.
