When aliens known as the Overlords arrive unexpectedly on Earth, humans begin to question everything they’ve ever known. The Overlords promise peace and a new Utopian way of life for Earth, but when their leader, Karellen (Charles Dance, Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game) reveals himself, bearing a striking resemblance to the Devil – bat wings, horns, and all – some humans believe there is something much more sinister behind what seems to be a world-shaking event that is all too good to be true. As Karellan begins to travel the globe, hand-picking humans as his ambassadors, an eclectic cast comes together to figure out the real reason the aliens have arrived.
