A lonely eight-year-old befriends an alien visitor in this Vietnamese sci-fi charmer. Working together, can they outwit the unscrupulous baddies trying to capture her?
Hung is grieving the recent death of his mother and seeks solace in anything space-related. One night, while observing a meteor shower, Hung sees something incredible; an alien spaceship crash-landing. He befriends the young pilot, Maika, and together they set out to search for her otherworldly companion and try to fix her spaceship. But a ruthless space entrepreneur also knows about Maika’s arrival and will to stop at nothing to keep her grounded. Can Maika make it home or will she be forced to stay on Earth forever? Inspired by a classic Slovak TV show from the 1970s, this Sundance crowd-pleaser is a delight for fantasy fans of all ages! Please note the film contains mild violence.
A winsome and heart-warming entry into the kid-film canon.
