One Halloween in the late 1980's, 10-year-old Henna and her 8-year-old twin brothers,
Henry and Brennan, climb into their tree house to sample the sweet rewards of a long
successful evening of trick-or-treating. Their faithful Golden Retriever, Barney,
settles into his doghouse below. Henna launches into a ghost story, and at the really

The children and Barney are later safely returned to their mom with no real memory
of the event. Yet each of them grows up with the story of their abduction, and each

Twenty-five years later, the family gathers to settle their differences but their

The aliens are suffering from a plague, and the only cure seems to be on Earth. The
human family members are drawn into an adventure that becomes comical when they discover

While the situation begins seriously, the surprising cure leads to fun. And once
the military understands the aliens are not invading but rather appealing for aid,
everybody unites to save the day.
CE-V (The Fifth Kind) is a universal family reunion everyone on Earth will enjoy.
