This fantasy film tells the story of David Freeman, a 12-year-old boy who falls off a cliff on his way through the woods, falls and loses consciousness. When he wakes up and returns home, he discovers that other, unfamiliar people are living in his home. The police bring the boy to his aging parents, who have given up all hope of seeing him alive because it’s 1986, while the boy fell from a cliff in 1978. Simultaneously with his appearance, UFOs are discovered in the vicinity. And not coincidentally! All these eight years David spent in the company of aliens and from the depths of the universe brought the knowledge previously unknown to mankind.
