After more than a decade apart, Maggie (Dianna Agron) attempts to reconnect with her estranged father (Thomas Haden Church). As they work through past differences, she discovers how much he’s changed in the last ten years. He’s fallen into mental decline and is known simply as “Acidman” in the small town where he resides. Maggie struggles to accept who her father has become and his stubborn beliefs, especially when it comes to his strange obsession with UFO hunting. But Maggie didn’t come home just to reconnect with Dad … she also has a life-changing secret that she’s afraid to share with him.
Feeling alone and unsure, Maggie needs her dad more-than-ever and hopes he can find the strength to be the heroic father one last time. As different as they are now, Maggie and Dad find new and unique ways to re-connect. Sometimes you have to send a message to aliens from across the galaxy just to talk to the person standing right next to you.
