From out of the sky comes a ship carrying an infant boy, and local Kansas couple Tori (Banks) and Kyle Breyer (Denman) decide to raise him as their own when they find him. The boy, named Brandon (Dunn), soon grows into a bright, talented and extraordinarily gifted youth – however, when he reaches puberty, a mysterious darkness begins to take hold of him, and his adoptive parents are left helpless as they witness their son turn into a twisted, vicious and unstoppable predator…
