Mikey and his two best friends, Bobby and Dominic, enjoy the same old things as most of their classmates, arcade games, movies and toys. But, most of all, they're fascinated by anything and everything to do with space.
For months now, the three best friends have been obsessing over a mysterious object orbiting Earth, the Black Knight Satellite, which NASA claims is a stray piece of heat shielding discarded during an early Apollo moon mission.

As a series of increasingly bizarre and disturbing events begin to unfold, they must face the awful truth, that they've unleashed a terrifying alien entity that could threaten the very fabric of existence...
