Avery is convinced she’s from another planet, which is causing some trouble as she adjusts to her new foster placement. Avery has been living with her current foster parents, Catherine and Jonathan Fisher for almost a year. Soon they will have to make a decision about whether or not they will adopt her. When the desires of these three characters clash and finally come to a head they each have to make some difficult decisions.
