JIMMY AND JARA FROM OUTTA SPACE

A twisted sci-fi road comedy with heart, a la “Little Miss Sunshine” with aliens, an interspecies romance and a spoof on classic sci-fi films and the American Southwest’s UFO subculture. JIMMY, a Venice Beach boardwalk hustler, discovers beautiful alien JARA and her two intergalactic circus performers stranded on Earth. He cons them into his “family” of misfit street performers and takes them to Las Vegas. Along the way, sweet-tempered aliens touch jaded human hearts. Ultimately Jimmy must save Jara and her E.T.’s from a ruthless Las Vegas casino kingpin, with the help of Nevada UFO buffs. Synopsis PDF Excerpt
