The stranger came to observe life on Earth – the peace-loving alien took the invitation we sent into space seriously. But the US Air ForceĀ  shot down his ship and now he has to clone the body of a human being just to stay alive. Armed with a small amount of earthly lore – how to say ‘hello’ in Chinese and the Rolling Stones’ ‘Satisfaction’ – collected from Voyager II, he will set off with a beautiful Earth woman on an adventure – a dangerous flight across America into the unexplored territory of interplanetary love.
