Cade is a seventh-grade misfit who is relentlessly bullied at school and misunderstood at home. One day a stray dog follows him home and he reluctantly lets it stay the night. It sleeps in his room. He wakes up the next day and finds a girl sleeping there. Her name is Ellie and she is an extraterrestrial who is on the run after escaping government captivity where she and her family have been brutally tortured by government scientists. During the course of the film, Cade tries to teach her about the good in people (although it becomes apparent that he can barely convince himself), and over time they form a bond that blossoms into a romance. But when FBI Agent Vinder arrives looking for a fugitive from justice matching Ellie's description, Ellie decides she must find a way to make contact with her home planet to rescue her and Cade must make a choice: Leave Earth to wallow in its narcissism and greed with Ellie, or die living in a world that doesn't even want him.
