Area Q (Área Q in Brazilian Portuguese) is a 2011 American-Brazilian science fiction movie directed by Gerson Sanginitto. It was shot in Los Angeles and multiple locations in the Brazilian state of Ceará.
The film follows the story of Thomas Mathews, a well-known and award-winning reporter who suffers a big impact with the disappearance of his son. A year later, Thomas has not discovered anything about the kidnapping and remains obsessed with it to the point of being about to lose his home and his job.
In order to help him, his boss offers a special project, in which the journalist must investigate cases of UFO sightings, close encounters of the first, second and third kind and even abductions. For this task he must travel to Ceará, Brazil, in the cities of Quixadá and Quixeramobim, known as "Area Q".
It is during investigations that Thomas meets João Batista, a man who has many answers about what is happening in this area and also about his son. Gradually, he begins to realize that he is about to experience the greatest discovery of his life.
