A prologue states that this was the year the Earth was lost. A 30-something Millennial couple, Su (Sunita Mani) and Jack (John Reynolds), decide to "disconnect" from their internet-obsessed and superficial lives in Brooklyn by turning off their phones for a weekend and staying at friend's cabin in the woods. As they drive away, objects begin descending from the sky. At the cabin, the couple reconnect with one another, discussing various ways to "become better people", such as by baking bread, going vegetarian, or starting a community garden. During their stay, Jack notices a strange fuzzy ottoman-like object sitting in the den and asks Su if it was there when they arrived, but Su ignores it and attempts to have Jack do several exercises she wrote down from an online list to help them become closer and more motivated as a couple and as adults. This irritates Jack and the two fight, causing Jack to go outside to chop wood. Angry at Jack, Su secretly turns on her phone and listens to several strange voicemails from her mother about giant rats that consume ethanol infesting New York. Before she can listen further, Jack returns, and Su quickly turns off her phone. Jack admits to Su that he feels inadequate as an adult, but is committed to them becoming closer. The couple make up, but in the morning, they realize the sourdough starter and their whiskey bottles are empty and that the fuzzy ball, which they dub a "pouffe", has moved on its own. Realizing the starter and the whiskey contain ethanol, Su recalls her mother's voicemails and admits to Jack that she broke their disconnecting agreement, but that she thinks the voicemails may be related to what's going on. The two hide upstairs and turn on their phones, learning from various belated voicemails and texts that the pouffes are alien invaders that have attacked New York, forcing a mass evacuation, and that the pouffes feed on ethanol.
