When a new girl, Justine, moves to town, Pete Larson — better known as Liar — is smitten. He gets his chance to impress her after a strange spacecraft crashes in the woods. Along with the class science geek, Bobby Ray Dobbs, they discover that the crashed UFO holds an amazing key to the future. But who’s going to believe a kid named Liar?
