Synopsis

Nerves are on the edge at the small town of Foxfield, MA when a lumber company wants to lease a large area of its northern hills for hardwood harvesting, which could give the municipality a much needed economic impulse. The main opposer to the deal is the Township Supervisor and head of the local Unitarian Church Henry Barnes, who recently received a death threat, supposedly from one of his constituents in favor of the leasing. The awful truth is that the northern hills are home for a Mi-Go station, and the aliens have kidnapped supervisor Barnes' two children, forcing him to block the deal. The voting is taking place in the next few days, and the clock is ticking for the Barnes family.
