A featureless alien lands on earth, and to blend in it takes on the shape of a girl she finds in a girlie mag near the landing site, Julianna (Lauren Ashley Carter).

The real Julianna is a porn star who has entered this profession because of the lifestyle - plenty of sex, drugs and parties -, but of late has started to doubt herself, as her life has become more and more vapid. A chance encounter with her piano teacher from back when (Catherine May Stewart) prompts her to audition for the conservatory, but she fails to impress. And relationship problems don't make things any easier on her.

The alien with Julianna's body meanwhile stumbles upon reserved Saghi (Neimah Djourabchi) and his warm-hearted sister Khahar (Sanam Erfani), two Iranian refugees who have long adapted to Western lifestyle, who take her in as one of theirs and teach her the ways of man. She soon becomes their valued companion and in case of Saghi also lover, as not only her absolute innocence and beauty charms them. Then though, while channel surfing, the girl stumbles upon a porn flick starring Julianna - and that night, not knowing she'd doing wrong, she takes her hosts' money and makes a trip to New York where she knows Julianna to be - but who knows what effects a "reunion" like this might have?

 

A very unique film, as it takes a piece of sci-fi staple and puts it into a charmingly lyrical context, carried by a story that continues to surprise to the finish and that cleverly avoids to be pinned down to any one genre. This is of course helped by suitably atmospheric direction, musical score and camerawork, but Lauren Ashley Carter deserves special mention as well, playing the roles of both the charmingly innocent girl and the internally spent adult actress to perfection - and she's supported by a strong ensemble, too!

Basically, this might not be a movie for genre purists, but if you enjoy thinking outside the box, this is pretty much a must-see!
