On September 17, 2014, a ship carrying an alien species known as the Atrians crashes to Earth while escaping from their dying world. They are met with hostility and violence from the very moment they arrive on Earth. A young boy, Roman, flees from a firefight against his people and hides in garden shed. He meets Emery Whitehill, a 6-year-old who feeds him and shows him kindness before Roman is shot and taken away. Ten years later, the Atrians are kept locked away in a slum and Emery believes the young Atrian boy to be dead. However, a government program brings 7 Atrian teenagers to her high school as a first step to integrating Atrians into human society. Among them is Roman, who informs Emery of who he really is. Now, they will face overwhelming challenges if they wish to be together.moreless
