Six boys and six girls are born in the village of Midwich, to women unable to account for their pregnancies. All the children have the same flaxen hair and strangely powerful eyes. Time passes, and by the age of nine not only do they have vast intellects, but they also seem to have supernatural powers. Those who oppose them are killed, and it is a scientist who will try to stop them.
