Soon Washington D.C. psychiatrist Carol Bennell (Kidman) and her colleague Ben (Craig) learn the shocking truth! The growing extraterrestrial epidemic attacks its victims only while they sleep! Leaving them unfeeling and inhuman! Argh! The infection spreads, more and more people are altered, and its impossible to know who can be trusted!
