They desperately plead with Jack to help them find their spaceship so they can return home. Despite his hesitance, Jack eventually agrees to help the children. Realizing he cannot handle this alone, he reaches out to a UFO expert, Dr. Alex Friedman (Carla Gugino). Once Jack is able to convince the doctor that his situation is real the group sets out to return the children to their rightful home. With government agents and an alien hunter hot on their trail, the four will have many obstacles to overcome.
