Unbeknownst to humans, a small group of alien botanists travel to Earth to collect plant specimens – but when government agents appear on the scene, the aliens are forced to flee in a hurry and one of their own gets left behind. Seeking refuge in a tool shed – the alien is discovered by 10-year-old American boy Elliot who decides to hide his new alien friend from discovery. Between dressing him up as an elderly woman, accidentally exposing him to alcohol and teaching him English through the powerful tool of ‘Sesame Street’; Elliot and the Alien, now named E.T, form a strong bond. But friendship might not be enough when E.T is slowly dying from the Earth’s atmosphere. Can Elliot, a young boy, get E.T back home to his own planet in time or will the government officials stop him before it’s too late?
