Story:Cable worker Roy Neary, who along with several other stunned bystanders, experiences a close encounter of the first kind - witnessing UFOs soaring across the night sky. After this life changing event, the inexplicable vision of a strange formation haunts him. He becomes obsessed with discovering what it represents. Meanwhile, bizarre occurences are happening around the world. The government has close encounters of the second kind - physical evidence of extraterrestrial visitors in the form of a lost fighter aircraft from World War II and a stranded military ship that disappeared decades earlier only to suddenly reappear in unusual places. Roy continues to chase his vision and finally will have a close encounter of the third kind - contact.
