THE TERRIFIED TEENAGERS WHO SURVIVE A SERIES OF ABDUCTIONS ARE THE FOCUS OF AN INVESTIGATION THAT REVEALS THAT A QUIET CATTLE TOWN IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS -- AND NEITHER ARE ITS CHILDREN.
The disappearances of several teenagers in Wisconsin convince a local sheriff to call in Mulder and Scully to investigate possible UFO abductions. But once on the scene, it appears that a mysterious cult, a bioengineered hormone and even alien DNA may be involved in an ongoing experiment involving the children of the town. A series of murders warns Mulder that someone wants both the experiment and the investigation shut down. Scully is shocked to recognize the face of Deep Throat's killer, and a quiet landlord confesses to an evil secret. Mulder and Scully must discover the link between the abductions and the death of the local doctor, in order to save the lives of the town's children.
