A U.S. Air Force re-supply crew, lead by commanding officer Captain Patrick Hendry, is requested to come to a research station (in Alaska) by Dr. Carrington (the head of a group of scientists working at a remote research base in the Arctic) after they think they have found unknown aircraft has crash landed in the area. The crew find out that the craft is a flying saucer in attempting to free the saucer out of the ice they find a body as well in the ice. After returning the body (in a block of ice) the research station is hit by storm resulting in any kind of contact from the outside world impossible. Even worse the block of ice melts to show an alien plant based creature with hostile intentions (requiring blood for it to survive). While the Dr. Carrington believes the creature can be reasoned with the others believe the creature must be destroyed. Can the team survive the creatures wraith?
