A working class everyman and estranged father. An infertile young wife. A local baseball prospect. An aimless, down-on-her-luck high school student. An introverted, artistic young boy.
Five unrelated citizens of a desolate Indiana town in the 1950s share one experience: one night, they all wake up in a wheat field with no memory of how they got there. Unnerved and confused, they return to their daily lives only to find more strange experiences: strange visions, new ticks and habits, and supernatural happenings beyond their comprehension. As the mystery of their strange experience unravels across the small town, the five bond over their shared experience.
Comparison pitch: Close Encounters of the Third Kind meets The Last Picture Show, with some Richard Linklater-isms. Rated PG-13 for language and thematic elements.
