The Zanchee, an alien race with strong psychic ability, have been monitoring Earth and learn a catastrophic event is about to happen. Axel, son of the alien leader, learns the Zanchee refuse to help because their law prohibits intervention. Now he must choose whether to obey their laws and condemn the planet or defy his father and help humanity.
Jeff, a high school senior, seems to be the only one who sees that alien spacecraft fly over the school. His subsequent search for the UFO leads him to Axel, who asks for his help. Jeff's decision puts himself, his sister, and his friends in danger.
Together, Jeff and Axel need to fight the odds if they are to save a doomed planet.
