Cableman Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) is one of several people who experience a close encounter of the

image in his head and becomes obsessed with discovering what it represents, putting severe strain on his
marriage. Meanwhile, government agents around the world have a close encounter of the second kind,
discovering physical evidence of otherworldly visitors in the form of military vehicles that went missing
decades ago suddenly appearing in the middle of nowhere.
