A naked man walks in circles in freezing snow.
Whispering a strange chant over and over, he does not respond to questions. Touch him and you are filled with terrible visions of pain and suffering. Up close, an odor of homelessness and manure assaults your nose. On close inspection, you find evidence of torture, both old and bloody fresh. Save him from the cold. Care for him. Nurture him back to health and you might discover why his former captors wore biohazard suits when handling him. He is a man who infects.
10 years after surviving the alien assault on Messenger's farm, his family is confronted with the mystery of the naked man. Why is he here? How did he get here? Is his arrival linked to their discovery of aliens gathered underground alarmingly close?
