    • Synopsis
    • Young Peter has high hopes for a family trip to the Caribbean, where his father, Scott, has taken a job. His parents’ marriage is troubled, and maybe a tropical vacation will improve it. But his mother, Barbara, is unimpressed with the island—and particularly with her son’s claim to have seen a UFO falling to earth there. Peter later finds a small metal disc on the beach which turns out to be an alien ship that sprouts legs and windows. Via the craft’s irascible talking computer, he establishes communication with the diminutive female alien pilot, whom he dubs "Freddy." She’s inquisitive and plucky, and her ship has amazing abilities, including enabling Peter to fly. The boy reveals his discovery to his new friend, Andreas, who recently lost his father in a terrible boating accident as well as his own ability to walk and talk. But when it turns out that modern-day pirates have awful plans for the exotic birds of the rain forest, the kids and the aliens team up to fight back.
