Agents K and J work for the Men In Black, an organisation specialising in hunting down aliens. Agent J used to be known as James Darrell Edwards III and was recruited by Agent K, after the latter observed the former hunting down an alien in disguise while working for the NYPD.
Should any humans come into contact with aliens, the Men In Black are required to wipe their memories. As Agent J puts it, the Men In Black are 'just a figment of your imagination.'
After a successful mission in China, involving a mutated fish, Agents J and K return to the States. The next morning, J comes into work and discovers that K is not at his desk. After trying to look for him, he tries asking around his colleagues. J is shocked when he is told by Agent Oh that K died over forty years ago. Further investigation by Oh and J reveals that history is being rewritten, with K at the centre of it all.
J must travel back in time to 1969 to stop K from dying. In order to go back in time, however, he must jump from the tallest building in New York - the Empire State Building. He only has twenty four hours to stop history changing, bring back K and stave off an alien invasion. As J put it in China: 'I'm getting too old for this.'
