A cave research team unearths an unknown species of pterosaur-like creature, referred to as “vesps”, from a mine. The vesps violently kill the researchers, fly out of the mine, and seek the noisiest areas.
Ally, a teenage girl who lost her hearing in a car accident, lives with her parents Hugh and Kelly Andrews; her maternal grandmother Lynn, who has terminal lung cancer; her brother Jude; and their dog Otis. As the news of the vesp outbreak spreads, the US government declares a state of emergency and asks people to stay indoors and quiet. Ally suggests they head to the countryside, which is likely to be quieter. Glenn, Hugh’s best friend, joins them and brings his guns. They set out in two cars, but a man hijacks Hugh’s car while refueling. Glenn shoots the man in the leg, and they drive away.
