Access to ethical judgement is held in custody as the mystery of a missing child unravels within the shroud of ufology.

Between caring for his clairvoyant mother with Alzheimer’s, running his cafe, and offering solace to a sister grieving over her child’s disappearance, a man participates in the gatherings of a society of ufology believers. He is secretly working with its leader on a project that will change human destiny. With the leader’s unexpected death, he takes on the task, which becomes increasingly intertwined with his niece’s disappearance.
