Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk - Firefly ) is hanging out in his cabin in the woods in a remote part of Colorado, USA. A UFO crash-lands nearby, so its pilot kills Harry and disguises itself as him. Now the alien tries to pass as a human at least until it can recover its cargo and complete its mission.
Sheriff Mike Thompson (Corey Reynolds - ) and Deputy Liv Baker ( Elizabeth Bowen ) conscript Harry-the-Alien into helping investigate the death of the town's doctor. Luckily the alien has been learning to speak American English by watching re-runs of Law and Order. The death looks like suicide, but the nurse Asta Twelvetrees ( Sara Tomko ) insists it must be murder.
Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk - Firefly ) blends in by taking over ads the town doctor. He realises his biggest problem is the little boy who can see through the alien disguise. Unfortunately, spending time in human form means he has developed human emotions.
