Veteran filmmaker Ham Tran (JOURNEY FROM THE FALL; HOW TO FIGHT IN SIX INCH HEELS; BITCOIN HEIST) gives us Vietnam’s first family sci-fi film, and introduces us to 8-year-old Hung who is grieving the loss of his mother. After a meteor falls to earth, he meets an alien girl from the planet Maika, searching for her lost friend. The alien helps Hung make new friends and heal a broken heart. But danger lurks. This is a fun for the whole family ride, that you’ll never forget.
