Roy, un operaio della compagnia elettrica dello stato dell'Indiana, durante la riparazione di una centralina, avvista un Ufo. Non è l'unico: anche Jillian con il figlioletto Barry e molti altri curiosi, come attirati da una premonizione, assistono al passaggio dell'oggetto volante. L'avvistamento cambia la vita di Roy che è talmente convinto dell'esistenza dei dischi volanti che viene licenziato dal lavoro e successivamente abbandonato dalla moglie. Nel frattempo, gli alieni rapiscono Barry, e Jillian prende a dipingere ossessivamente sempre lo stesso paesaggio: una montagna identica a quella che Roy scolpisce con qualsiasi sostanza gli capiti tra le mani dal giorno in cui ha avvistato gli Ufo. Ô la Devil's Tower, presidiata dalle autorità a causa di un incidente ecologico: in realtà si tratta di una scusa per sgombrare la zona dalla popolazione. Sotto la guida del professor Lacombe, infatti, un'equipe di scienziati è riuscita a stabilire un contatto con gli alieni e a fissare un incontro. Roy e Jillian riescono, nonostante tutto, a raggiungere la montagna: alla donna viene restituito suo figlio; Roy, invece, si unisce a un gruppo di volontari che si imbarcano sull'enorme astronave
