In 1947 New Mexico, a radio operator receives a bizarre signal, coming from
Roswell. He decides to investigate the signal's origin and goes out to follow it, to
never be seen again. Present day and the same signal is received from the
South Pole and then retransmitted from the Falkland Islands to the United
States. A satellite image captures an unknown object sitting on the Antarctic
snow. Cryptologist Julien Rome (James Spader), a teacher at Berkeley
University, is invited to investigate the mystery and he is sent to an Antarctic
research base, which includes a huge greenhouse of genetically modified plants
