Having crashed to Earth, an extra-terrestrial space traveller must assume a human identity lest he be captured by the authorities.
The alien chooses the likeness of the recently deceased husband of Jenny Hayden.
At first dumbstruck, Jenny becomes both hostile toward and frightened of her guest. He gradually wins her confidence, learning a few vital English-language phrases so that he can explain his presence.
The "starman" has come to Earth with a message of peace and he asks for Jenny's help in transporting him to the Nevada desert, where his fellow aliens are to pick him up and take him to his home planet.
