In a small New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles's legendary 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast - the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America - citizens face what they think is their last night on Earth. Over-worked mayor Clark will take a chance on love. Neglected housewife Lorraine will break free from her big-cheese husband. Demure schoolteacher Peg will become a warrior. The aimless reverend will rediscover his faith. The scared sheriff will find his courage. And the reclusive war veteran will become a hero as he convinces the town to fight the aliens. All join forces for a final "battle" that leads to a surprising outcome.
