JIMMY AND JARA FROM OUTTA SPACE

Sci-fi romcom a la "Little Miss Sunshine" with aliens, and a human-alien love story. 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. On a road odyssey to Las Vegas, sweet-tempered aliens touch jaded human hearts, and ultimately Jimmy and his carnies must save Jara and her aliens from a ruthless Las Vegas casino kingpin.
