More Info IMDb

A body-snatching alien takes possession of a young woman who refuses to surrender her mind, and together they seek out the man they both love in this adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's New York Times best-seller.

The majority of the human race have been possessed by unseen invaders, leaving only small pockets of "wild" humans like Melanie (Saoirse Ronan) scattered throughout the world.

Upon being captured by the invaders, Melanie finds her body claimed by Wanderer, a spirit that has been warned of the difficulties that come with claiming a human host.

When Melanie fights to maintain control of her mind even as Wanderer possesses her body, the sympathetic entity joins her on a journey for freedom.
