|Plot Summary of Strangers|
One hot summer's night, the Tranquility Motel housed many guests. Each patron had a horrible experience but oddly, none can recount those secret events. Then, one by one, strange dreams, sleep walking, or severe anxiety attacks begin to plague the guests from that mysterious night. Memories of a terror unknown begin tapping at their subconscious trying to break free.
As a result, some of the motel guest committed suicide. One sought the help of a hypnotist who ended up murdered. Just before his death, he had discovered that a mind block had been placed on his client, but why? Another, actually healed a gunshot victim. Not all the side effects of the night in question were adverse. These people had come in contact with something other worldly but not yet revealed in their memory.
As each began to uncover hidden secrets of wonderful changes, one by one, they were drawn back to the Tranquility Motel. Here, the final strands of the mind block were broken and clear memory revealed the event that was the object of the cover up. After their memory recovery, they learned they were still being watched and were the victims of military mind control and now, targets of one crazed general. He feared all were infected by their extra terrestrial visitors.
