Through memory flashbacks accessed by hypnotic regression, this made for TV movie from Universal depicts the alleged UFO abduction of biracial couple Betty(Estelle Parsons) and Barney Hill(James Earl Jones) on September 19, 1961 in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Upon returning from a trip into Canada, Betty (a social services worker in Portsmouth, New Hampshire) and Barney (a postal employee in Boston) are plagued by crippling anxiety and nightmarish visions. Turning to Psychiatrist Dr. Benjamin Simon(Barnard Hughes) for help in piecing together the happenings of that night, the Hills enter into therapy and independently relate a most unearthly tale. Based on the book The Interrupted Journey by John G. Fuller.
