Maxie is not from this planet. Born in a distant nebula in the Milky Way Galaxy, she is a cosmic being in the form of consciousness, spreading empathy to those she encounters with her touch.
A daughter of immigrants watches as her parents are forced onto a bus in the early morning hours in Texas.
On a chilly afternoon in Oklahoma, a son comes home to find the coroner carrying his mother’s body to the morgue.
At a funeral in Colorado, another son mourns the loss of his mother while his father is imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit.
When events surrounding her charges' pasts threaten their futures, Maxie breaks the protocols of her kind and helps them. And through her friendship with a lonely man in San Diego, she learns more from a human than she ever thought possible.
