Before evil had a name, there was LILITH.
Something has come aboard the U.S. Navy's newest state-of-the-art super carrier, the USS Gerald Ford, something supernatural and as ancient as time itself. And it's taking over the crew one by one.
Reporter Hunter Singleton and his wife Lisa, guests invited aboard to witness a routine training mission off the coast of North Carolina, soon learn that the CIA is on board as well, and that some of the ship's crew are acting irrationally, even violently.
When an unexpected monster hurricane slams New York, the ship rushes to assist in the aftermath, and Hunter, Lisa and the crew are faced with the terrifying realization that whatever has come aboard the Ford must be stopped before it is set free on the streets of Manhattan. But how do they fight something beyond human comprehension? How do they kill something that may not even be alive?
