In this comic book/graphic novel, two parents try to save their crumbling marriage by taking their six-year-old daughter, Ellie, on a week’s vacation aboard a luxury Star Liner orbiting Earth and Mars. Ellie is a precocious child who also happens to fall somewhere on the Asperger’s spectrum.
Soon after reaching orbit, Ellie begins hearing voices from what she calls angels, claiming they are “coming for our world.” As the days pass, Ellie alarmingly slips in and out of a catatonic state for short periods of time, each time explaining that the angels are getting closer.
Are the angels real?
Is Ellie suffering a mental breakdown…or is this first contact with an alien intelligence?
