Faraday was first spotted by a local farmer who called the police. Feeling unbearably thirsty, Faraday swallowed part of the water hose, which caused bewilderment of the arriving policeman, who later took him to the station.

When it’s time to leave the police station, Faraday asks to contact a woman named Justin Falls. She works in a hazardous industry, and is torn between raising a child and caring for a sick father. Arriving to look at the stranger, because of whom she was called out, she is sincerely surprised at the words he said. He knows things that she has long buried in her memory.
They concerned her past work, moreover, successful. Long ago, Justin made an innovative discovery, but then she realized that she was mistaken. Faraday knows it wasn’t a mistake. Everything is much more complicated than it seems. The discovery of Justin can help the alien save his home planet, but for this he needs to humanly convince her to help.
The first attempt was unsuccessful, and Faraday went alone in search of answers. But instead, he ended up in an unpleasant story: two men saw that he had a lot of money and decided to attack him. Justin, passing by, recognized the morning stranger and decided to help him. After a while, they were able to find a common language …
