Synopsis

Zoe, a Texas state police detective, is assigned to investigate the case of a missing person. In the process, she learns that one member of an ex-couple has faked a new identity and gotten married, making him the main suspect in the case. What Zoe will soon find out is that he is no longer his true self. He has been body-snatched by Zerch, an ancient cosmic creature who uses humans as hosts in order to survive, but who also needs to change bodies every seven years. Zoe isn't able to stop it from taking the man's wife as a new host, but the monster will let her take a glimpse at the timeless cosmic mystery, driving her temporarily insane. When Zoe comes back from madness, she will be ready to hunt Zerch down.
