Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Aegis

Anthony Kendricks has been searching for years for evidence that life forms from other planets have visited Earth. He finds evidence to support his theory and with his friend Paul, leaves for Canada to prove his theory. They join a helicopter pilot "Eve" and set out to find a location in northern Canada. A mysterious gunman shoots down their helicopter and they find themselves seeking shelter from an snowstorm. They find refuge in a cave and seeking warmth, they go deeper. The cave ends at a strange wall and to their amazement; they find that the wall is alien. Anthony finds a three fingered handprint and the wall opens to an underground hangar. The hangar isn't human and they aren't the first humans there. They soon find themselves running from a powerful group of people who will do anything to get the alien artifact they are carrying. Their escape route leads them to underground hangars on Mars, where aliens have transferred earthlings to other planets for hundreds of years. To their horror, they also discover that all life on the surface of the Earth will end, and the artifact is the key to saving the human race.
