Moscow finds itself on the brink of destruction after a mysterious spaceship crash-lands in the center of the city. While the government seeks to find out what the ship’s passengers want and how to protect the local population, the rest of the citizenry break into conflicting factions. Some view the aliens as a threat that needs to be extinguished, and others hope that the visitors bring with them a chance for peace. When a young woman finds herself torn between her seemingly normal life and the alluring promise offered by one of the all-too-human extraterrestrials, the fate of the entire world may hang in the balance.
