What if highly intelligent humans built a spaceship in the time of Noah to escape the Great Flood?  What if these humans have been living in the caves of Venus for the last 5000 years?  Short on raw materials, they have developed their brains, and have powers of ESP, telepathy, and can harnass static electricity.  Three such teenagers steal a Venusian ship, head back to , Earth, crash down on the property of a retired Oklahoman couple.  The military is hot on the alien's trail.   

Newly retired ODELL JORDAN finds the kids a nuisance, while his wife MARCIA thinks they're runaways.  When they realize the kids are "out of this world", and that the military will abuse the kids with a barrage of tests, the couple decides to hide them.

But then the grandkids come for a visit, befriend the alien kids. The alien kids are cool.  They eat cigarettes, drink toilet water, and can move things telepathically.  

The military finds the craft, returns to the house.  With Marcia and four of the five children at the mall, Odell and one of the boys barely escape.

Odell arrives at the mall, reunites with the kids, but the military is only minutes behind.  It's a race to the spaceship.  But Odell and the kids do not know that the military has taken it away.

The worst thing in the world to a teenager is to appear "weird" to her peers.  Imagine the horror of DAWN JOHNSON when her mother proclaims she is having an alien's baby.  It isn't enough that Mom, MARIE, just divorced her dad, but now she's getting "all psycho" and it's getting hard to explain to Dawn's friends.

But everyone seems to like the new homemaker Marie, who stays home and knits booties instead of rushing off to her high pressure banking job.  Marie is in a nesting stage and wants Mike to move back in, become part of the family again.  Younger sister, LORNA, desperately wants this too.  Dawn is torn -- part of the family, but why subject dad to this craziness?

   The alien visits, inserts the fertilized egg inside of Marie. This time, Dawn sees the alien father and finally believes the unbelievable -- her mother is an alien incubator. 

   Dawn tries convincing Marie of the dangers here, but Marie is in some kind of baby-trance and isn't thinking clearly.  Dawn must act before something terrible happens, or at least before the Harvest Dance which is only two weeks away!.
   Shortly thereafter, Marie lays an egg, and proceeds to roost on it.  "Oh my God, my Mom's a chicken!", Dawn exclaims.

   Hot on the alien's trail, the local TREKKIES hear about the egg, want to take it away, and sure enough, Marie decides that after the egg hatches, she's keeping her alien baby!
   The night of the big Harvest Dance arrives, and Dawn clings to her one night away from all the problems.  But she cannot have a good time. She rushes home to see a green light hovering over her house.  The alien father has returned, and he wants his baby!
