Virginia (Cindy Chiu), a girl of Asian descent, has just saved her half-sister she has never met, Mattie (Nora Jesse), from a whorehouse in Arizona, and now they try to make their way through the desert to San Bernardino on a lame horse, never knowing whether they're followed or not. On their way through the desert, the two of them have to notice they are not very much alike: While Virginia is pretty much a bible thumper and therefore a bit narrow-minded, Mattie is a free spirit and at ease with her sexuality ...

Then the two girls find a crashed alien spaceship, and in it an alien child, and while Virginia wants to just abandon it, calling it a beast, Mattie insists on keeping it, and caring for it, even if the alien soon bites Mattie, and later even the horse (the alien doesn't know any better I feel obliged to add).

The alien bite causes infections in both Mattie and the horse, and after a day or two, Virginia has to realize they can't go on like that. Fortunately then, they run across two drifters, Baylor (Shelby Bond) and Red (Peter David Parasiliti), who offer assistance. Virginia declines because distrusts the men from the start, simply because she doesn't trust men other than her husband (Tim Chiou), but Mattie claims to know Baylor from her whorehouse days, and on top of that, they don't have any choice, right?

Mattie is treated in the next town, but her doctor soon realizes she has been infected by something very special, and finds out about her alien friend ... and wants to use her and the alien for his claim to fame within the science world. Virginia, Mattie and the alien soon make a hasty getaway, together with Baylor and Red, and while Baylor is to take Mattie and the alien to Virginia's husband, Virginia and Red go for the alien's spaceship where they expect to be some medicine. On the way there, Red tries to rape Virginia, and tries hard enough that he finds herself forced to shoot him dead.

At the crashsite of the spaceship, Virginia finds the alien's parent, who promises to heal her sister, and once at Mattie, the alien does so, even if Mattie was already pronounced dead.

The ending has the spaceship with parent and child alien flying away while Baylor proposes to Mattie.


A Foundling is a cute film in the best possible way: Sure, the film doesn't feature a lot of action and mainly consists of women talking to each other, enduring all kinds of hardships and taking care of a baby - but all of this is embedded in an extremely well-written script full of pointed dialogues, populated by well-drawn characters and fuelled by quite a few unexpected plottwists ... and did I mention the baby was an alien? Add to this a great cast (especially the two female leads admirably find into their roles) and beautiful photography, and you've got a pretty good movie. Only the ending is a bit on the cheesy side, but thanks to the whole movie that preceded it, that's easily forgiveable.
