A family, 100,000 chickens with a death sentence, a secret that will unveil all family secrets, and a star 2,500 million light years away that will make them understand that we all are metaphorically ExtraTerrestrials.
Astrophysicist Teresa is getting married and comes home after being out of touch with her family for more than a decade. At first her father doesn’t recognize her, but Teresa wants to establish a relationship that probably rarely existed given his old-fashioned ways. The fact that Teresa is marrying another woman, will be the hardest thing she will ever tell her family, but with her secret, other family secrets will start unraveling too. Meanwhile, he’s having difficulty with the government and people trying to close down his chicken operation since he’s beating the big operators and they don’t like it. And what to do with that genius, introverted grandchild who’s best friend is one of the chickens? Coming to terms with all this may prove difficult.
