Investigating the disappearances of more that 200 people, one of them being his own son, New York police detective Mike Wilson encounters a stout man in possession of a watch with extra-terrestrial features, including the ability to teleport people to the alien's home planet.

Detective Wilson's wife, Joyce, falls under its spell. Wilson is offered the choice of going along or losing his wife forever. If Wilson doesn't do so, the watch will be pressed three times which will send Joyce to Aleria without Mike. Forced to give an answer, Mike Wilson smashes the watch twice, breaking the hypnotic hold on Joyce. The two go as a brand-new watch appears.
