The Aliens is a subtle excavation of how young men form identity. It begins with two thirty-something best friends, Jasper and KJ, talking music and literature in their favourite hangout spot, the lot behind The Green Sheep. When Evan, the shop's new employee, starts asking questions, the two friends invite him into their world. The three open up to one another, sharing dreams, stories, and substances, revealing the strengths and limitations of their bond.
