The Return of Halley's Comet

In the year 1910 in the town of Centuryville a friendship was born between non-verbal aliens, 'Halien' beings and a young girl. Fast forward to the present, the 'Haliens' return looking for their friend. Prejudice and intolerance promoted by Mayor Maggie Banks and her cronies leads to the capture of the 'Haliens' with plans to sell them to the circus. Maggie's daughter Nelly, Professor I. Curio and others try to "find a way" to understand and communicate with the 'Haliens'. They come to believe they are peaceful and sensitive beings. The courtroom trial unfolds revealing the mystery of their mission. .
