Twelve alien ships of more than 450 meters of height have arrived at the Earth, located in diverse points of the planet. Well-known linguistics expert Louis Banks (Amy Adams) is then hired by the US Government to decipher and translate the message that ETs try to convey to humanity.
Louise will travel to Montana, United States, along with scientist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner), to try to establish a communication with the “visitors”. Together they will try to find answers to this surprising event. Why the aliens have come? Do you want to invade the planet? What are your intentions really? Faced with the threat of a possible world war, leaders of large countries must reach agreement so that the situation does not become even more complicated and thus avoid a conflict whose consequences could be catastrophic.
