“A vacationing family encounters an alien threat in this pulse-pounding thriller based on the very real Brown Mountain Lights.
Locals have heard stories of lights in the sky over Brown Mountain for over 800 years, dating back to the Cherokee and Catawba Indians. Sighting of the lights are usually accompanied by disappearances, and many have suspected they are UFOs.
While on a camping trip in the remote region, youngest son Riley, sees mysterious lights in the night sky, which he is able to record on his hand held video camera. Due to his autism, Riley uses a camera to narrow in his view of the world which otherwise can overwhelm him, and therefore documents his family’s vacation. The film is the recovered footage from the boy’s camera.
After seeing these lights, the trip takes an ill fated turn.
