Summary A weird form of giant plant life has descended on Santa Mira, and has spread to nearby towns. These "pods" contain blank human-life forms that systematically take over the townspeoples' bodies while they sleep. Once this is realized by the survivors, the fight to escape becomes as dangerous as the need to sleep
