It’s been 22 years since a mysterious burrito truck abducted Bajo’s parents. Dedicated to finding them, the socially awkward Bajo still hasn’t uncovered any leads but after landing a job with Spatial and Extra-terrestrial Phenomena Investigations (SEPI), he does discover aliens secretly living amongst us.

Intel agent Violet can’t contain her emotions, which is ironic given her brain is contained in a fish tank.
