It’s Michael’s first night on the job when he begins to see shadows emerge from halls and doorways. Michael’s supervisor, Robin, seems to know many of Pinborough’s secrets but suddenly disappears unleashing a maelstrom of horror beyond his wildest imagination. Michael has no choice but to confront Pinborough who reveals that he was a part of The Majestic 12 and covertly recovered an alien infant from the Roswell crash in 1947.
