The story revolves round a seventeen-year-old girl… Emma and her boyfriend, Lucas who is bed ridden, fighting cancer… While everyone seems to have given up on him, she has the utmost belief that Lucas is going to wake up soon.

Thus when Lucas wakes up the very next morning looking as if nothing has ever happened to him, Emma feels happy thinking she has cured him. But all hell comes loose when she realizes it is not the same Lucas she is seeing now. Something deep has changed. As incidents pass by and after lot of questioning Lucas opens up on the secret, Emma finds it extremely hard to believe but Erik (Lucas’s brother) believes it all and convinces her into helping thing out.. Now she putting her life in bait is battling the agents who want Lucas…. She can do anything if it means getting Lucas back..

How would you feel if one day you are told that aliens do exist? that they are not harmful? 

How would you feel if you realise there is a way to cure your love? What if cancer could be cured easily?

A story about two different places.. similar feelings.. never ending love and trust. 

The most interesting part of the story is the beautiful approach to the cruel world…a approach so clever and unique that would point out the flaws and make us realise the truth.
