Rim of the World | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Alex (Jack Gore), a socially reclusive boy, reluctantly attends a summer camp in southern California called "Rim of the World". He meets two other "misfits" - ZhenZhen (Miya Cech), an orphan from China, and Dariush (Benjamin Flores Jr.), an outspoken boy from a rich family. That afternoon ZhenZhen wanders off into the woods looking for the lookout point she had seen on a camp poster, while Alex attempts to follow. He comes across Dariush, who happens to be nearby answering the call of nature. Dariush mistakenly tries to 'cure' Alex's fear of heights by making him stand near a cliff edge, and Gabriel (Alessio Scalzotto), a boy they hadn't seen at camp before, intervenes. ZhenZhen, hearing the commotion, comes back down and meets up with the boys. At that moment they all receive alarming texts advising they immediately evacuate the area.
While hurrying back they witness alien ships invading the valley, and afterward discover the camp to be empty of people - all except for Conrad (Tony Cavalero), a camp counselor. Suddenly, a Dragon spacecraft fleeing the International Space Station lands heavily nearby. The dying astronaut inside the spacecraft gives Alex a key with instruction that it get to NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) facility in Pasadena, and that it was the only way to destroy the aliens. An alien appears with its "dog" and kills the astronaut and later, Conrad, but Alex and his friends manage to elude the aliens and escape the camp.
They make their way to the Sheriff's Office and discover an inmate, Lou (Scott MacArthur), who has been left behind in the cells. Alex decides to release him before the group continues on their way to the JPL. Later, the group encounter Marines who are evacuating civilians - the commander gratefully takes the key and puts the children on a bus to safety. However, alien ships attack the vehicle convoy and the soldiers are killed, whereupon Alex retrieves the key and the group sets out for the JPL once more. During the night, after briefly taking refuge in a house, they are attacked by a gang of masked individuals led by Lou. He agrees to let the teens go, but only if Alex gives him the key, which Lou thinks he can sell on the black market. Alex refuses but right before Lou attacks him, the alien from the camp appears and attacks them all. Lou is killed, but the teens manage to escape after trapping the alien in a backyard swimming pool.
