A black alien meteor lands in small desert town of San Angelo, it is first found by one of the local geologists and takes it into the lab to try and find out what kind of material it is. The next day the geologists is discovered petrified, by his fellow geologists Dave Miller, along with larger amounts of the black rock all over the place. Dave soon makes a horrifying discovery that when the black meteor pieces touches any kind of liquid it multiplies to get amounts and heights. The rock continues to raise up and fall making a path of destruction hurting the town and even worse a rain storm is also about to hit the town. It's up to Dave, various experts and the town residents to stop the rock before it can spread across the Earth.

Chief Dan Corey: "Evacuate? The entire town?"
Dave Miller: "Chief, the rocks are gonna come crashing through here like an avalanche over an anthill. There won't be a living thing left. You won't even be able to tell where San Angelo was."
Prof. Arthur Flanders: "When they're no longer confined to the walls of the canyon, when they break out into the valley floor, their rate of multiplication is going to be frightening."
Chief Dan Corey: "You mean they'll grow even faster?"
Dave Miller: "Each one that shatters will make a hundred more."
Prof. Arthur Flanders: "When that hundred shatters, there'll be ten thousand of them. The third cycle will create a million. Unless we stop them, they'll spread over the whole countryside."
Dave Miller: "With enough rain, there's no boundary they can't cross."
Prof. Arthur Flanders: "No telling what went on inside of it. It's been gathering the secrets of time and space for billions of years."
Dave Miller: "Billions of years? And how long have we to unlock its most important secrets? Three hours or three minutes?"
Prof. Arthur Flanders: "You've got to remember, Dave, when this hit our atmosphere, it burned at such a fantastic temperature, that its metal-bearing compounds could have been altered - left ready to activate, to grow!"
Narrator: "From time immemorial the Earth has been bombarded by objects from outer space. Bits and pieces of the Universe piercing our atmosphere in an invasion that never ends. Meteor, the shooting stars on which so many earthly wishes have been born! Of the thousands that plummet toward us, the greater part are destroyed in a fiery flash as they strike the layers of the air that encircle us. Only a small percentage survives.

Prof. Arthur Flanders: "Dave, if it is a meteorite, the chances are it's been hurtling around our universe for a good many centuries. The answer to your question lies buried in those centuries. We'll just have to dig for it."
Martin Cochrane: "The desert's full of things that don't belong. Take the salt here. Used to be an ocean bed. Now that ocean knew that the middle of a desert was a pretty silly place for it to be, so it just dried up and went away."
