Along the way, they meet two American travellers for some drunken revelry in Moscow. And, when they least expect it, an alien invasion occurs in the city. These aliens are not big-headed or bug-eyed creatures, but energy-based beings that make their presence known by lighting up bulbs and other manipulating electrical objects. Without an electrical indication of their presence, these aliens are essentially invisible. These creatures also have the power to turn human beings into piles of ash. The rest of the film deals with how these tourists battle these aliens.
