Summer, 1947.  An emotional alien girl from an unemotional planet crash-lands in Roswell, where two teenagers, unknowingly in love, hide her in plain sight as the new waitress in the diner, only to discover they have put her in greater danger when a clueless tabloid reporter stranded in Roswell, creates pandemonium with his own "alien invasion", which happens to include romancing whacky "Cousin Aileen." Will it be the story? The girl?

Or intergalactic war?
