This time, humans are the ones invading a foreign planet. Mala is a precious alien girl whose father, Roven, is abducted during a hostile invasion. In order to save him, Mala kidnaps a crashed and injured human pilot, Jim. While Mala nurses him back to health, it is revealed that Terra’s atmosphere is inhospitable for humans.
