In 2010 "Skinwalker Ranch" gained media attention after experiencing a wide range of unexplained phenomena. Reports ranged from UFO sightings to livestock mutilation, and most notably the disappearance of ranch owner Hoyt Miller's (Jon Gries) 8 year old son, Cody (Nash Lucas). Modern Defense Enterprises (MDE) sent a team of experts to document and investigate the mysterious occurrences. Any skepticism quickly vanishes as the team begins to experience inexplicable incidents on their very first night on the ranch, which only escalate as things unfold – they are forced out of bed by a deafeningly loud and painful tone, an enigmatic noise they can't explain.The next day, after an incredibly large object set off a sensor in the field, they discover a dead calf drained of all blood with almost surgical precision. This pales in comparison to what they discover while reviewing the security tapes; an image bearing the likeness of Cody, running through the same section of the house at precisely the same time each night. That night it happens right in front of their eyes, prompting Hoyt and the team to give chase all the way into an old locked shed before Cody just vanished. Inside the shed the team not only finds enormous canine tracks, but evidence that MDE had been there before back in the 1960's. Among the evidence, a buried video tape and a steel box labeled "For Emergencies Only." It was empty… What was in the box, and what is on the tape? What was MDE investigating the first time, why did they keep it a secret?
