or: How aliens from another galaxy invaded my summer vacation
BY RAY NELSON
DIRECTED BY JOEL KIRK
LINE PRODUCED BY JENNY GORELICK
It’s the summer of 1998, and General Motors and the United Auto Workers are locked in a never-ending labor strike. In a suburb outside of Flint, Michigan, hundreds of striking autoworkers descend on a campground to spend what’s left of their summer. Josie, a 14-year-old girl, finds herself on this campground in the care of her Uncle Don.
Left alone one night, Josie discovers otherworldly visitors sending her signals over the radio. As the adults around her begin to act strange, Josie believes her only hope is to find her deadbeat dad because “he’s seen every sci-fi movie ever, and he’ll know what to do.” In the process, Josie realizes that the people around her are not as strong as the person inside herself.
