Arrival

In the clear skies of Montana, in an unprecedented worldwide incident of simultaneous first contact with extraterrestrial life forms, an ominous alien pod out of twelve in total, comes to a standstill, hovering only a few feet over the green prairies. Is this some kind of peaceful contact? Inevitably, as panic ensues, Colonel G.T. Weber recruits a team of various experts including the esteemed linguistics and dialectology Professor Dr Louise Banks and the theoretical physicist Dr Ian Donnelly, burdening them with the impossible task to decipher a coded conversation with the intergalactic visitors. But when all attempts to communicate prove fruitless, a practical, yet very important question will arise: does humanity have enough vocabulary to understand the aliens' answer before a new global war sparks?
