A Revolta da Madeira, iniciada na madrugada de 4 Abril de 1931, inseriu-se num período de forte contestação que se fez sentir no arquipélago no início da década de 30, que começara, em concreto, com a Revolta da Farinha (em Janeiro daquele ano) e depois se prolongou nos anos seguintes, até culminar na Revolta do Leite (meados de 1936).
An old Soviet space capsule re-enters the Earth’s atmosphere, spreading radiation over North America. Homeland Security Director Tom Taylor (James Rich), along with his “B team” of misfit agents, are the first ones on the scene to investigate and contain the damage from the apparent terrorist attack. But appearances are deceiving. When a boy of mysterious origin is recovered from inside the capsule, Taylor realizes he’s out of his depth. Against orders from his superiors he recruits the prickly astrophysicist Dr. Zachary Walzer (Jack Haley) to help his team get some answers. Walzer demands to know if they’re dealing with something extra-terrestrial. But Taylor assures him...it’s a little weirder than that.
