Present day in a small village in America. An impending invasion by unseen and unknown forces. There has been no gas and no cellular connection for a year. Into this scene of fear and paranoia, a stranger appeared a year ago. A Young Woman with no memory of her past. The Villagers think she is strange and regard her with suspicion. The rumors & lies about the woman grow. Soon the Villagers are calling her a "witch" and saying that Satan commands her to do evil and she is the cause of their suffering. The Woman is terrified. All she has in the world is the Boy who she believes is her son. She wants the Boy to say she is really his mother. She loves him. She believes that if he can say he loves her she will be saved. The Boy refuses to speak. At the last moment, the Boy, her son, runs to her and speaks for the first time. He calls her his Mommie and begs her not to die. He finally tells her that he loves her. The Woman opens her eyes and is reborn through his love.
