The brainchild of Harvard psychiatrist and alien encounter researcher John Mack, this markedly earnest documentary from filmmaker Laurel Chiten (The Jew in the Lotus) examines the lives of alleged alien abductees from all around the world. Disregarding the more sensational facets of these phenomena, Chiten focuses on the oft-forgotten human aspect, chronicling the repercussions abductees face in the wake of their bizarre encounters.
