Bare Bones: When the people around her begin to act strangely, a psychiatrist begins to suspect that there's something sinister behind their personality shifts.
The Invasion doesn't try to be fancy. It Doesn't rely on special effects of weird graphics, just good old human portrayal, and I honestly think that was an excellent decision. Too many films in the last decade or so ruin their potential with awful effects. This one, quite frankly, didn't need them, and, thankfully, didn't try to force them.
