    • Synopsis
    • The Drift is a sci-fi comedy, set mostly on the road. It follows two male (alien) hip twenty somethings as they try and find their way to a freshly crash landed space ship in a forest in the middle of nowhere. Their reason being that they wish to get off this poisoned rock and onto a utopian planet. However they are being thwarted by the sinister 'shadows', an organisation made up of nefarious humanesque entities who are able to transcend space and time. They are also being chased by the secret service, the army and private corporations who are hell bent on gaining the advanced technology as well as an evangelical preacher who thinks that they are the 'Gods' returned to rescue humanity in a spaced-out new-age second coming. The two protagonists pick up a mad bride along the way whose local knowledge turns out to be more of a hindrance than her mental state. The twist at the end is their sudden altruism in crashing the stricken ship onto the White House lawn thus bringing about the change in direction that humanity so greatly needs.
