A group of scientists discover a long lost squadron of WWII aircraft in a remote desert in Mexico. Ray Neary (Richard Dreyfuss), an electrical lineman in the Indiana countryside, has a close encounter of the second kind (or one that leaves physical evidence). A woman witnesses the abduction of her son. Each of these are connected, and they all seem to lead to one place, Devil's Tower a mountain in Wyoming. To the dismay of his wife (played by Teri Garr) Neary becomes obsessed with the shape of the mountain and begins making all kinds of models of it. Before long he sees a news report about Devil's Tower and determines to make his way to it, along the way he comes in contact with the mother of the abducted boy and the two of them make it to the mountain in time to witness 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.
