Area 51, Nevada, USA. A black spot on a map in the middle of the desert. With an on-board camera, a machine crisscrosses the night in search of answers. Thousands of antennas riveted to the stars are listenning. Suddenly a flying object tears the sky apart. The inhabitants of the small town of Rachel hold their breath.
