A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and for Michael Talbot - that step is taken at Indian Hill with his best friend Paul Ginson by his side. Together they grow up, meet girls, and go off to college. And that's where everything changes. While out on a date Mike, along with thousands of others, are quite literally abducted by aliens. Known as the Progerians, their mission is to determine how best to conquer the human race. To that end they force the men to fight one another in death matches. The women are given to the victors as spoils. Believing his friend to be dead, and furious with the government's refusal to even acknowledge what happened to him, Paul decides to take matters into his own hands. The aliens may have killed his best friend but they aren't going take his planet. Not if he has anything to say about it.
