Maple Street, 1960, a peaceful suburban neighborhood, like any other in America. When suddenly, what seems to be a meteor flies through the sky above the street. Everyone who wasn't already outside comes outdside.
Not too long later, several of the neighbors started forming a small group to head downtown and figure out why the power was out. Then, a 14 year old named Tommy comes out and begs them to say. He says that the aliens don't want them to leave the street.
Later that night, lights in some houses started to flicker. People started going after each other, finding simple little flaws like Les Goodman not coming out to see what the "meteor" was earlier, and Mr. Brand having a radio in his basement.
Suddenly, a dark figure appeared and slowly walked toward them. Someone grabbed a shotgun, then Mr. Brand took it and said to think sensibly, then Charlie took itm and shot the figure. They all went to the figure and saw that it was Pete Van Horn.
Not even minutes later, everyone turned on each other. People were grabbing things, someone grabbed Pete Van Horns hammer and they started dropping like flies. Not much more time and all of them would be dead or hurt if things didn't change.
Not far from Maple street on a hill, two of the aliens talked. They talked about how the worst enemies too humans are themselves. And that when something goes wrong, they try and find a scapegoat.
