Project X is subtitled "The True Story of Power Plant 67" and supposedly tells of the events that led to the destruction of the Mt. Diablo power plant in November 2004. A mysterious power-consuming creature attacks the plant in the middle of the night and begins to kill off the workers. The fictional story centers around David Scott—the night shift manager—and the other employees of the power plant. David's backstory is revealed through a series of flashbacks.

Official Plot Summary: A deadly creature is on the loose and the workers at Mt. Diablo Power Plant have no idea what's headed their way. It's the ultimate power struggle as they battle the monster, each other, and their own inner demons.[2]
