Set in Perth, Western Australia. Al Connor is getting worried that his life is on the line and the people in charge just think of him as a number. He is expendable and has no say or is told what is going on. He has to suck it and see. The They People dont give a damn about him and complain if he wrecks a car, or asks for anything necessary for his safety. All they want to do is capture the aliens and their spaceship.
Well they try a few different things to capture the aliens and their spaceship, but it always backfires on them. Even when they get to mediate with the aliens, the They People think they are smarter than the aliens. Al finds out that there is something the aliens are after and that we have it. He suggests they give it back, but who is he to say what They are to do. So it goes on and it builds into an all-out offensive by the aliens. Can Al survive the onslaught, or will he perish, as other are doing so?
