In 1975, logger Travis Walton (Sweeney) and his co-workers encountered a UFO. His pals were able to flee — but Walton was not so lucky. Whisked aboard the strange craft, he was subjected to a painful, unearthly medical study. Fire in the Sky details Walton’s ordeal … as well as the contempt and ridicule he and his friends endured as they tried to convince others of this otherworldly experience.
