The residents of a small Mexican village, just 40 miles or so south of the Rio Grande, panic when they learn a being from another planet may have crashed near by. As the result of an altercation with local police, one policeman is dead and the alien is severely wounded. A young boy, Pedro, quickly forms a friendship with the alien who says he has come in peace. He also says he has a gift for the people of the Earth, but the villagers fear means that mankind will never benefit from the alien's generosity.Written by
Geoffrey Horn plays Mr. Williams, a human-looking but in reality alien man who has sadly crash-landed in a primitive and dirt-poor village in Mexico, near the Texas border. A young boy named Pedro has befriended Williams, but after an altercation with a local policeman, becomes a wanted man, and the fearful villagers get wind of his presence, and decide to hunt down and persecute him, though as it turns out, he has brought a gift for the whole human race, one that it may never get to appreciate... Though well-intentioned, this remains a dreary and unsatisfying morality play about the tragedy of not only human stupidity, but the bad luck of arriving in the wrong place...
