In a single moment, the entire life of a girl Una is turned upside down; her grandpa is abducted by aliens and her mum collapses and ends up in a hospital. Una discovers that her grandpa is an alien himself whose spaceship hit the planet some time ago, and there’s still his pilot, a small grumpy robot. Una and the robot have less than 24 hours to find and rescue her grandpa. This extraordinary adventure will lead to a new friendship, the rational robotic logic will be replaced by emotions and Una’s selfless love will save her partly alien family.
