"...It has a chilling hypothesis....THE ARRIVAL springs surprises on us right to the end..."
A radio astronomer obsessed with listening for some sort of cosmic noise finally hears a shockwave late one evening. In his search for an explanation he discovers a horrifying fact -- Earth is the target for an imminent alien invasion!
Radio astronomer Zane Ziminski becomes intrigued by some strange wavelengths and noises he picks up over his transmitter. But when Zane alerts his boss to his findings, he's fired. So Zane conducts an investigation on his own, tracing the sound waves to a Mexican village. After more sleuthing (and some odd occurrences), Zane discovers a power plant -- that turns out to be the headquarters of some very deadly extraterrestrials...
