When two aliens are sent on a mission to Earth, they're not quite sure what they will find. However, their instructions are clear: determine if Earth is worth saving by observing its people and their lives. Only problem - they've landed in Salt Lake City where the people are..........unique. SLAC's Summer Show is back with a comedic out-of-this-world romp in the Beehive State as we follow our intergalactic friends and their close (maybe a little too close) observation of the Jorgensen family.
