After fleeing Earth in the 1980s, an eccentric alien returns to his quaint childhood home to look for his best friend Sam. While Thorp may be not of this world, the film considers what it means to be human today with campy humor and a generous helping of retro style. The film hits close to home in many ways, including being able to boast Liz Printz and Andrew Terlizzi, two UNCSA alums, as producers.
