Louise Banks, a linguistic, is asked by US Army Colonel to enquire the landing of twelve extraterrestrial spacecrafts. She is accompanied by theoretical physicist Ian Donnelly.
As the panic continues throughout the world, Louise continuously sees images of herself with her deceased daughter. The difference in the means of communication starts to cause confusion, and hence insecurity among the people of Earth.
So is it a new beginning or the beginning of the end?
