|Plot Summary of The Taken|
What begins as an unseasonal rainstorm turns out to be much more when the inhabitants of Earth find themselves being drowned out to make room for an alien race. After the rain stops, the fog moves in and with it comes the mental torture. Those that survived the rain are attacked by the reanimated dead, life-like fungi, and other creatures. When there is no hope left, one couple is given a mission by a golden retriever to try and protect the children of the town.
