“Never Leave Anyone Behind” is a familiar refrain for American Servicemen. A crew is incapacitated in a strange land and a hostile government tries to capture them and steal their resources. What if you’re not a member of the military? Do you put you and your family’s lives at risk to help those who can’t help themselves, especially for those who may never reward you or who may not even survive?
Josh Evens discovers an injured shipwrecked alien and undertakes to not only care for it, but to seek out, rescue and protect its companions from both his government and others.
He must race against time, attempting to remain under the radar, unnoticed by the police, the military and the NSA. He must protect not only these unknown aliens he can't even speak with, but his family, friends and associates he's putting at risk. Not only is the US military after him, but so is every other military as they race to recover their technologies.
