On a cold and snowy suburban night, lonely science fiction enthusiast Matthew (Ben Nichols) mourns the loss of his deceased girlfriend Grace (Haley Fieldhouse) through a picture of her likeness and a dying flower. Barely able to cope with his grief, Matthew wastes his life away until he receives a visit from an unexpected visitor - a being from another planet like the ones he reads about in comic books. Matthew first panics at the arrival of this mysterious extraterrestrial, but he soon realizes in time that the alien may serve as his key to obtaining the spirituality and solace he desires. Combining breathtaking special effects with a poignant story about letting go, The Alien stands tall as an electric allegory of intergalactic proportions. Written by
