‘Aliens Abducted My Parents and Now I Feel Kinda Left Out’

This all-ages science-fiction story of two small-town teenagers, aspiring journalist Itsy and space-obsessed Calvin. Itsy meets her neighbor, Calvin, who she hopes to be her writing subject for an internship when he reveals he believes his parents were abducted by aliens. The film follows the pair as they uncover the truth about Calvin’s parents and gain a heartwarming friendship along the way.
