One night in a small Florida town, on the border between Disney World and the heart of conservative America, a liberal teenager witnesses a beautiful spaceship flying through the sky. She’s eager to find someone with whom she can share this life-changing moment. But when she finds it in a middle-aged conservative neighbor, they both resist the inevitability of their shared humanity.
