When Agents Mulder and Scully go missing in Seattle, local FBI Agent Craig Willmore is assigned to investigate. Although his investigation leads him to believe the Agents were killed in order to cover up a Russian smuggling operation, a series of strange deaths start to drag him into the world of the X-Files. From government coverups to alien encounters, he is about to discover the truth is nothing like what he ever could have expected.
