While searching for evidence of an advanced neolithic culture archaeologists find a burial chamber. There are what appear to be several human skeletons but most fascinating is a skeleton wrapped in a resin-like material. Expedition leader Nathalie Granger insists that they continue excavating the site themselves keeping what they've found secret lest someone else take the credit from them. As the cocoon dissolves, Nathalie's husband Curtis feels like something has entered his mind and sees images of a battle with a group of primitive humans. The creature, which Curtis feels is of alien origin, begins to reconstitute itself and one of the expedition members starts to be more concerned about the profit they could make rather than the scientific value of the find. Curtis - and a reluctant Nathalie - decide to save the creature.
