Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same

Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same

Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same tracks the adventures, misadventures and experiences of three aliens from the planet Zots, sent down to Earth on a mission to rid themselves of romantic emotions, which are considered toxic to their planet’s atmosphere. They are told to have their hearts broken on Earth, where such heartbreak is considered a given. Two of the aliens, Zylar (promiscuous and sassy) and Barr (codependent and clutchy), fall into an unfortunate romance with each other, but Zoinx meets Jane, an Earthling of mild manners who lives an uneventful life and works in a stationery store. Unaware that the sudden object of her affection is an alien (despite her bald head and monotone speech), Jane falls hard for Zoinx. The feeling is mutual. An original mash-up of lo-fi New York City romantic comedy and sci-fi B-movie spoof.
