Heading to the moon to coordinates of an old Soviet Lunar Lander, only to discover something very mysterious. The two astronauts on the lunar surface begin to encounter strange things when they encountered an abandoned Soviet Lunar Lander with a dead Cosmonaut found inside. After leaving, they begin to hear strange noises when their lighting was turned off and very small sounds of movement. Growing suspicious about the whole mission, things start to take an ugly turn for the worst when lunar rocks come to life as malignant creatures. Desperate to get rid of the creatures before they infect the rest of the crew, the surviving astronaut is force to use the Soviet Lander to call for help with the possibility of escaping the moon to tell Ground Control what he had seen on the lunar surface. This was not to be, since this is the Cold War and keeping secrets at the expense of human lives is still going on. The final tragic turn comes when the orbiter and lander collide in lunar orbit killing all three astronauts. The US Government decided to cover up the fact that the bodies were not able to be recovered for burial by giving more mundane explanations to the families. The film plot ends with the question that many of the lunar rocks that were recovered from previous Apollo missions are now missing and unaccounted for. Yet, the film was considered to be a success because of the possibilities of an alien conspiracy is nothing new in telling a tale of science fiction.
