David is contacted by Anne Gibbs, an alien who is on the run from both her fellow aliens and humans. She is the undesired result of an attempt to mimic human behavior by creating emotion.

Still, she tells David she will come with him to Washington to tell officials everything she knows about the aliens' plans. But the aliens plan to kill...
