The film that absolutely terrified a very specific generation of moviegoers, FIRE IN THE SKY recreates the strange events that happened on November 5, 1975 in the town of Snowflake, Arizona. Travis Walton (D.B. Sweeney) works as a logger in the White Mountains. When he and his colleagues drive home after work one night, they encounter a UFO. Travis gets out of the truck to learn more and is struck by a beam of light from the object. He vanishes without a trace and his colleagues are accused of murder. When Travis reappears five days later, at first he doesn't remember that he was gone, but in time, the terrible memories come flooding back...
