It's 1958 and Russell Keys has long since left his family. During one of his abductions, however, he see his 12-year-old son Jesse has also been abducted. Keys has been trying to find a pattern to his abductions in the hope of avoiding being taken. So he returns to his home in Illinois and convinces his son to run away with him. His ex-wife Kate, who is re-married to Sheriff Bill Walker, is frantic particularly when Russell returns but Jesse does not. Owen Crawford is now a Lieutenant Colonel and in charge of the program resulting from the Roswell crash. Very little has been accomplished in the last 11 years so he fires the entire team and decides on a new tack. In Texas, Sally Clarke's son Jacob is now 10 years old and clearly has special powers. His half-brother and sister want to send him away to a boarding school to protect him but Sally is completely against the idea. She reconsiders after getting an unexpected visit from Crawford who tries to dupe her. Written by garykmcd

Owen was in trouble with their engineers crew, they works on alien's Spacecraft for around ten years however without any tangible results, a German engineer in charge of the project advises to bring to the complex some people with psychic minds, both women died trying operate the spacecraft, Col. Owen finds one of those children, takes the child with mother's agreement, nevertheless the boy realizes in intention and uses his powerful mind to get rid and go back to home, 90 minutes running it seems a feature-length film instead an usual series, this turn Spielberg made a fine job as executive producer!!!
