Against a Single Match, the Darkness Flinches enters the world of a young boy who, after reading in the National Inquirer that aliens were coming, gets up in the middle of the night, packs a lunch and goes out into the back yard to wait for their arrival.

While waiting for the prediction to come true, the boy embarks on a singular empowered by the naiveté and imagination of a child, yet stung by the revelations of the world's volatility.  Despite confusion, he returns from his journey filled with humor and sadness.

A segment of the script is written from the captioned news.  Another segment details the boy's trip to the zoo.  Yet another segment takes a journey to the moon.
