Charlie (Jedidiah Goodacre) and four of his friends go on a weekend trip to a remote cabin on the lake. As they stop for gas on the way to the cabin, they notice unnatural cloud-like clusters hovering over Earth and wonder what's causing it. While there, one of the friends, Brendan (RJ Mitte) notices a truck with blood in the back. As he's taking photographs, he's grabbed by a mysterious stranger (Wesley Snipes) and threatened. Charlie comes to his rescue and the friends leave for the cabin.
At the cabin, they discover an abandoned shack with military items inside, and at night, there's a red glow beaming down from the sky. They try to defend themselves when aliens descend and try to abduct them. The mysterious stranger from the gas station turns up and seems to have special knowledge of the attack. He explains that the aliens have been planning a multiple mass abductions of humans for years, and have been guiding mankind's evolution from the very beginning.
