10,000 years in the past, a mysterious abduction occurs in remote Australia.
In the present day, a record of the event is discovered by teenagers, which cracks open a mystery when astronauts on a routine shuttle mission encounter an alien presense. Transmitted a bizarre device, the shuttle crew return to earth to solve the puzzle. Meanwhile, Blake Adams stumbles upon a small-town murder and, accused, runs from the scene. Protected by a pair of teenagers, he finds himself in the centre of some extraordinary happenings after a concealed cave painting is revealed. Soon, the race is on to discover what an alien craft is demanding -- and to prevent a catastrophic event in sleepy outback town Useless Loop, where Kutji, a terrible Aborigine spirit, waits to cause havoc inside NASA's downed space shuttle.
