However, things take an intriguing turn when he witnesses a UFO sighting and starts experiencing strange dreams. In the dreams, he sees a beautiful woman named Marta (Terri Partyka) who communicates with him telepathically.
Soon, Scott discovers that Marta is an alien from a planet called Venus. Marta has been sent to Earth to experience emotions, which Venusians are incapable of feeling. She chooses Scott as her subject and begins to explore human emotions through him. As Marta and Scott start to bond, they begin to experience some of the most intense emotions they have ever felt.
However, things take a darker turn as government agencies start to investigate the UFO sightings. They are convinced that Marta and her spaceship pose a threat to national security and will stop at nothing to capture her.
