A man arrives at a hidden temple deep in the jungle to find three others ahead of him. The temple informs him that they are really aliens and the temple is a rescue ship that broadcast images of the temple onto movie screens that only they could see which is why they felt compelled to seek out the temple. The man realizes that he is not one of the aliens since he has not been to the movies, but is undecided whether he should reveal himself or go along with the aliens and leave Earth.
