In this conspiratorial Sci-Fi thriller set some time after WWII and loosely based on the US government's real life Project Blue Book, Captain Michael Quinn and Dr. Allen Hynek are tasked by the US Air Force to investigate reports of UFOs and debunk them, or at least come up with rational explanations for them. While Quinn, a smooth and tough military type, doesn't care about anything other than doing the job he was given, at first, the more skeptical Hynek quickly becomes convinced that some kind of deadly conspiracy is afoot. Meanwhile, as Cold War paranoia spreads among the population, a charismatic blonde with an agenda of her own befriends Hynek's lonely wife.

When Project Blue Book came to fruition in 1952, it was the beginning of the epic denials of all objects in the sky. Before 1952, sightings were openly investigated ,discussed by seasoned pilots, scientists and credible witnesses. It also seems to coincide with with the impact of the movie "Day the Earth Stood Still"(1951) and the Brookings findings that a gag order seemed the norm on all information. That plausible deniability was the only answer no matter what was found or by who. See more
