15 years ago, Richard (Shane Woodson) lost his wife in Penelope (Taryn Manning) a car accident - but not in the usual sense, she was actually abducted by aliens, something his daughter Angela (Kelsey Morgan Arnold as a kid, Augie Duke as a grown-up), who was with them in the car, can confirm, and the gouvernment did their best to cover everything up. Now Richard, who has been paralyzed ever since the accident, leads a rather pitiful life, which consists of hosting a UFO-abduction podcast to about 50 conspiracy theorists and drinking way too much, with his only friends being his chihuahua Buster and Steve, who has originally only come by to convert him to Christianity but now sees it his Christian duty to look after Richard. His daughter has since the accident and his subsequent failure as a father come to detest him. And then Buster falls ill, Richard loses his podcast, and he decides to kill himself - only to then refrain from doing it, as he can't leave Buster behind but can't kill him, either. And then Richard has a vision of his wife, talking to him via his computer screen ... and the next day, not only is Buster back to perfect health, but also Richard can walk again - and he has a weird tattoo on his arm, which a fellow conspiracy theorist (Sadie Katz) can translate as coordinates and a certain time of day - apparently a message from Penelope as to when and where to meet her. One can't blame him for getting excited about this, but then Steve stops by, and he turns out to be a gouvernment agent who has been tasked with shadowing Richard, and naturally he wants to bring Richard in for testing, if need be at gunpoint. But when Angela arrives at Richard's house, alarmed by a suicide note her dad has sent her the other night, things get really out of control ...


A nicely unusual alien abduction film, one where the science fiction elements take backseat behind the character study of a man overcome by grief, and what lengths he will go to to find relief - and at the same time the film also works as social commentary on conspiracy theory culture and the like. And this blend has turned out to be a rather entertaining whole, thanks to a clever script, a fittingly subtle and for the most part unexcited directorial effort, and a very solid and relatable cast. Well worth a look for sure.
