    • Synopsis
    • Richie Valentine doesn’t believe people. As the top assessor in CAC Insurance it’s not his job to believe people, it’s his job to weed out lies. And given his Mum, Dad, wife and just about everybody else in his life has run out on him why should he believe anybody anyway? The only person who ever stuck by him is his young son Tommy, and Rich is determined the boy will never have to be exposed to life’s vagaries the way his poor old Dad has.
      But after his one thousandth straight rejected claim Rich is finally about to be inducted into the insurers’ hallowed Non Believers Club – a job for life, a place at the table among the industry’s greatest skeptics and enough income to ensure his young son stays safe, protected and insured forever.
      However he first needs to complete the final audit required for membership in the club– a seemingly straightforward farmer’s claim about disappearing cows.
      Easy enough, except there’s a catch – the farmer is his uncle Harry. And worse, when Rich arrives to pull the rug under Harry’s feet his uncle tells him the cows have in fact been abducted by aliens.
      And in Rich’s world there’s no such thing as aliens, there are only cheats and liars.
      Determined to expose his uncle and all the scammers and liars in his old home town once and for all, Rich goes on the hunt to uncover the real cow rustlers, only to find himself up against weirdos, goons, religious fanatics, lizards, childhood bullies, his childhood sweetheart Charlie…and what appears to be a spaceship.
      As Rich’s increasingly desperate attempts to disprove the case begin to alienate him from Uncle Harry, Charlie and his only son, he is faced with having to believe the impossible or lose the only people who truly love him. But he’s about to discover that the impossible doesn’t even come close to the truth…
