Synopsis
An alien is sighted in the vicinity of a number of strange events, like buildings lifting off the ground and floating in the air before landing again. The only thing that the alien seems to fear is a man bundled up like a mummy in men's clothing. But after the police subdue the alien they find that the he is really a doctor, and that the man wrapped like a mummy is a mental patient who is actually responsible for the chaos.
