A strange alienlike creature washes up on the shores of Montauk, Long Island. The creature has a birdlike beak, a bald, bloated body and appears to have a tag tied to its front limb. When images are posted on the Internet, millions of people across the world follow the story. Is it a sea turtle that has somehow lost its shell? Or a mutant creature from a top secret government research laboratory?
