John Klein (Richard Gere) is a hotshot Washington, D.C. reporter whose life suddenly takes a turn after he and his wife Mary (Debra Messing) are involved in a car accident after she apparently tried to avoid something on the road. Although she suffers a non-fatal head injury, Mary's CAT scans show that she has an inoperable brain tumor diagnosed as glioblastoma. After she dies, John discovers an assortment of cryptic drawings she made of a strange black winged creature she saw on the night of the fateful accident.
Two years later, while driving to Richmond, Virginia, John gets lost and inexplicably finds himself almost five hours off-course, arriving in the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. He soon becomes entangled in the personal stories of residents and in a chain of mysterious events, wherein townspeople report strange supernatural encounters, along with weird lights and phone calls. With the help of town sheriff Connie Mills (Laura Linney), John begins to investigate. He determines that the common link is an apparently supernatural creature known as the Mothman, whose appearances seem to foretell disasters. Things take a decidedly personal and frightening turn when he realizes the eerie connections between his wife’s drawings, eyewitness accounts of the Mothman, and phone calls from an other-worldly, seemingly malevolent entity named Indrid Cold.
The Mothman becomes a personal obsession for Klein. He meets an expert on the subject, Alexander Leek (Alan Bates), who convinces him that there may be a tragedy in store for the small town.
