British best friends, Graeme Willy, a comic book illustrator, and Clive Gollings, a comic book writer, travel to the United States to attend Comic-Con and visit well-known locations surrounding famous UFO sightings in their rented RV. After meeting their egotistical comic book writing idol, Adam Shadowchild, at Comic-Con, Graeme and Clive head to the open road to explorer the American west in search of the famous landmarks surrounding the Area 51 UFO crash in the 1950’s. Shortly after Graeme and Clive have an encounter with a group of angry rednecks, nighttime falls as the pair travel a deserted highway. A car passes the duo and crashes on the side of the road. When they stop to help the people involved in the crash, Paul steps out of the vehicle. Paul, a five-foot tall alien, describes the severity of his situation to Graeme as Clive pees his pants and faints. The trio drive away from the accident as Paul tells the two how the organization has kept him hidden away from the public eye as a guest of the country after he crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in the 1950’s. He also states that he ran away because “The Big Guy” wants to remove his brain. Clive becomes jealous of the bond between Graeme and Paul, and they meet Ruth, an attendant at her father’s RV Park, who has one non-working eye. She joins the group and they head toward Paul’s safe destination. As they drive, Zoil, an agent for the organization, Ruth’s religious father and a pair of the organizations dumbest agents, follow in hot pursuit. Paul’s frustration grows with Ruth’s religious outlook as they travel and attempts to educate her, and she and Graeme begin to fall in love. While on the journey, the group contends with Paul’s odd mannerisms, abilities and sense of humor, while attempting to avoid being captured by their pursuers.
