Journalist John Klein’s wife Mary wrecks their car to avoid hitting a winged, man-sized creature. Later, Mary dies, and John finds sketches she drew that depict the winged being. John then arrives in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, with no memory of the journey or knowledge of how he completed a 400-mile drive in two hours. He meets a local cop named Connie investigating sightings of a moth-like creature that resembles the entity his wife sketched. John joins the investigation and learns of UFO sightings and previous messages from the moth-man that have foretold disaster. When he begins receiving phone calls from the creature, John realizes a crisis will soon befall Point Pleasant. The crisis occurs when an area bridge collapses, resulting in numerous deaths.
