On a quiet suburban maple street, somewhere in America, residents notice a meteor-like object flying in the sky. All the residents begin questioning when the lights go out.
Steve and Charlie were going to walk to the police station, since none of the cars were working, when they were stopped by Tommy, a boy who lived on the street. Tommy explained that the meteor was a ship and monsters from outer space didn't want them to leave.
Les Goodman's car turns on and he is accused of being one of the "monsters." The neighbors slowly start to become more of a mob.
Charlie shot Pete Van Horn thinking he was a "monster" and now the residents are questioning Charlie.
The entire street is blaming each other for the entire situation and they have become a mob.
Aliens have been in the "meteor" and they have been controlling the electricity and the phone line. The aliens plan on taking over the entire world.
