  • Betty Hill is a social worker. Her husband, Barney, works at the post office. In 1963, they can't be called an ordinary couple: he's black, she's white. But what is truly extraordinary about them is not their interracial marriage. Two years before, in 1961, they had a strange encounter while driving along a lonely road at night. Something happened, but they don't remember what. They both become obsessed with their strange memory lapses. They even think they might have seen a UFO. Now, they are seeing Dr. Benjamin Simon, who is uncovering their hidden memories through hypnosis. Dr. Simon can only believe that what they tell him is fantasy; but Betty and Barney are certain that on that lonely road, they were abducted by extraterrestrials, who forced them to undergo painful medical exams. And their only proof is Betty's memory of a star map.
