And so, there is this idea about an alien movie that has been floating in my head.

The movie starts with a black screen and a gunshoot. Fading in, you see a parent running away a gun in hand pulling their child behind them being scared the crap out as an alien (type AlienTM franchise) is stumbling outside their house, clutching their chest where the gunshot obviously hit them. The parent all but tosses the kid in the car and drives away from the isolated area they live in.

The alien doesn’t give up and starts following them.

The parent make contact with some special agents who take upon themselves to take the parent and child to a safe place. It’s when they start asking the kid questions to sympatise that flashbacks start to come in. At first, the flashbacks show the place the kid lives in from the outside. The kid plays in the garden but feels like they’re being watched. They don’t think much about it though and keep going with their game.

Back in the present, the kid is mostly silent and one agent is playing with their smartphone, using an app to register their voice and make it high pitch or low pitch. The parent is a bit annoyed by it and the other agent tells the first one to stop. The agent pockets their smartphone but winks at the child who gives their first smile in a while.

As they keep driving away, more flashbacks come on the screen, showing the child playing outside always alone and the alien eventually making contact with them. At first, the alien tries to avoid the contact but eventually warms up and touches the curious kid. It gets eventually shown that the brown shell on the alien body is actually a body armour and the skin under is pale and translucent. The child eventually asks the alien their name but the scene cuts before the alien replies.

In the present time, the alien manages to track and eventually gets back to the group and tries to attack as they make contact again. The parent panicks and out of anger, pushes the child off a cliff to a certain death. The kid screams a name.

As the alien jumps down after the kid, shoving the parent aside, we get to see the last flashback where the alien peeks in the house the child lives in and sees the parent beating them. The alien gets very angry and irrupts in the house, breaking a window. That’s when the parent grabs a gun and shots at the alien, breaking some device that is attached to their chest, linking to the first scene of the movie. As the kid is pulled away, we get to understand it’s of the parent it’s scared.

In the present, the agents bring the parent under control as they’re losinng their shit and pretty much say that wasn’t it for the child, they would have never had any problem. One of the agents looks down the cliff to see the alien slowly climbing up with the kid in their arms.

As they get on the top, the child starts talking to the alien and that’s the first time we get to hear the kid’s voice in present time and they tell the alien how they had been waiting for them. The child pauses as if listening to the alien but there is no sound. The child seems to be answering some questions and that confuses the agents. The parent is being delirious and says it’s because the kid’s crazy and the agents get fed up with them and locks them away in a car.

Then as the parent’s voice is muffled, some form of rumble can be heard from the alien and the smartphone agent realises it’s speaking on very low frequencies; the kind children can hear but adults loses the ability to. They take their smartphone out again and approaches the alien, turning on the recording. As they modulate the voice to higher pitch, they get to hear that the alien was saying it was sorry for being late. The kid answers it believed they’d come to get them.

The agents start discussing what really happened although they start to have a good idea from piecing stuff that happened while they were together. The alien explained that the gunshot damaged their comunication and modulation system but they managed to fix the device that calls the spaceship at least.

As said spaceship appears, the alien says they have to go and the kid asks if they’d ever see each-other again. The screen faddes to black as the alien answers they promises they will come back to get them.

After credit scene, we get to see a pre-adult teenager at school, looking bored. As the final bell rings, they get out and the smartphone agent is waiting for them outside. As they follow them in car and then in a large room, the teen doesn’t recognise the large white creature that is standing dressed in colorful clothes until the alien speaks up their name. They run to them hugging them and crying saying they always believed they’d come back.

This turned out longer than I expected…

But I mean, does the alien always have to be the bad guy?
