A Pullitzer Prize winning photographer, named Mosley, gets kickedoff his job by his boss (Bobcat Goldthwait) for not taking sensational pictures consistently. He finds an old camera in a Pack-Rat's yard sale, which he later finds has some undeveloped film in it. He develops it, sees proof of aliens abducting a man, and tries to ask different people, including the Air Force, newspaper, a UFO freak, and finally a tabloid to help him. The tabloid publishes his story in a way that makes fun of him. He heads to the tabloid office to confront the president, and gets in a fight, and tossed in jail, where he meets yet another UFO freak (Billy Bob Thornton). He gets bailed out (just in time!) by a beautiful young woman, named Paige, whose father was in the pictures being abducted, and has disappeared ever since.
