When Harvard psychiatrist John Mack approached filmmaker Laurel Chiten (Twist & Shout, The Jew in the Lotus, Twisted) asking her to make a movie about encounters with aliens, she thought he was crazy. But after meeting some of the so-called "experiencers" she was intrigued they seemed rather normal and spoke about feelings of connection and longing for these uninvited intruders to return.
She had stumbled into a world filled by people who had been touched by something ... and had their lives blown apart because of it.
"I realized I could not figure out the origin of these bizarre stories, nor could I prove or disprove the existence of alien. Instead, I wanted to explore the human drama: who are these people, what has happened to them, and why does this distinguished Harvard professor believe them?"
