The story starts in Maple Street, in a typical a small town in America. On Maple Street, the residents see a flash of light and believe to be a meteor. This flash of light seems to stop everything from working; cars, telephone, and radios.
I´m mad at you
Tommy tells everyone that there are aliens. That they don't want Steve and Charles to go fix the lights. Tommy also tells them that the aliens are a family. A mom, dad, and 2 kids.
The town starts to blame one another. They blame each other because the car turns on and some houses get light. So people think they are the aliens when they are innocent.
Everyone is still blaming each other. And eventually all the blaming turns into fighting. Everyone is blaming and arguing and fighting with each other.
Charlie sees a shadow and started panicking and accidently shot and Pete Van HOrn with his gun. All the neighbors started yelling and panicking.
Everyone is still fighting and blaming each other. But in the last scene when everyone is mad at each other... It turns out the aliens where controlling everything and their plan was to control the lights for the people to turn against each other without them having to go.
