In 1977, terminally ill former Army Major Jesse Marcel (Kyle MacLachlan) attends an annual reunion of his bomber group and attempts to understand some mysterious events from 30 years ago. In 1947, Marcel's crew were ordered to investigate a top-secret crash site near Roswell, New Mexico, where they recovered debris that suggested that an unidentified flying object had crashed there. Forced to stand behind a dubious cover story for three decades, Marcel now wants to know the truth.
