UFO cases come in all kinds of flavors, but few are as juicy as what Ryder, Ben and James have found in Brazil. In 1996 there was an incident in the forests outside of the city of Varginha. Some locals report that an alien ship crashed and that some survivors escaped into the jungle where they remain today.
To verify these claims, the team travels to Brazil on an adventure full of discovery and peril. Ryder, Ben and James begin their investigation with a local UFO investigator who was one of the first people on scene after this alleged crash.
A.J. Gevaerd tells them that in the days after this supposed crash he saw how the military and police swarmed the area and carted out large pieces of what he believed were debris.
A.J. also tells the team that it’s believed that the military captured two alien survivors, but others escaped into the forest. Following that lead, the team treks into the jungle to try and spot these aliens, or at least some evidence of their presence.
However, the team gets more than they bargained for as day turns to night and they’re forced to camp in a rainforest full of spiders, reptiles and perhaps alien visitors.
Following more leads, the team then travels even deeper into the forest interior to a hidden cave where some say those aliens may be taking refuge. To get there, however, the team must take an unfamiliar form of transportation… a raft.
Floating down a river through the rainforest the team soon runs into trouble as the waters turn dangerous and they find themselves running wild, whitewater chutes.
Shaken by their trip, the team arrives at the cave and travels into its subterranean depths where they find evidence that they’re not the only ones who have visited the site.
Heading back into Varginha to track down more clues, Ryder, Ben and James speak to three women who claim to have seen one of these aliens cowering in a vacant lot. Clearly shaken by their experience, the women describe a creature they took to be the devil. Overwhelmed by their story, James reacts in a way that complete shocks the others.
With all this testimony, there’s only one thing left to do— find the evidence. The team travels back into the forest to the site of this alleged crash.
Believing that if a ship really did crash land there must be evidence, the team undertakes a daring night time mission to find some. Will they prove that aliens are marooned in the Brazilian jungle?
