Synopsis: The navy has assembled a team of top scientists to investigate, what they believe to be, the wreckage of an alien spacecraft they discovered resting at the bottom of the ocean. An underwater habitat has been constructed near the craft on the ocean floor and a team sent down to investigate.

Once inside the craft, the team makes an astounding discovery: The controls are marked in English. Further inspection of the mile-long craft shows that there is room for a crew of 20, but no signs of the crew. They are surprised to discover a large, gleaming, metallic-looking sphere with a concealed door.

As each of the team members decides to enter the sphere, the line between reality and illusion begins to blur. Their behavior begins to become irrational. Each begins to distrust the other. Each must face their own inner demons. As time runs out, the team must surface and forget the terrifying experience of the sphere.
