In response to the message of earthlings with the recording of greetings and other information, some extraterrestrial civilization sends a ship to Earth. However, US military aircraft , finding an unidentified object in the sky, knocks it down. One stranger manages to survive the collision of a ship with the earth, and he sneaks into the nearest house, in which the young widow Jenny grieves for the dead spouse Scott. After viewing the photo album and videotapes, as well as finding a memorable strand of Scott's hair, the alien manages to take on the appearance of Scott, having completely copied it at the genetic level.
After contacting his fellow tribesmen, the newcomer reports about the accident, and also learns that he must arrive at a certain place within three days in order to have time to return home with his own. Taking Jenny with him, he sets off on a journey by car, and the pursuit of the military and explorers follow him.
Along the way, he finds himself in various funny situations because of ignorance of the language and customs of earthlings, resurrects a dead deer and sticks into a couple of conflicts. At first, Jenny thinks the alien has kidnapped her. In the end, it awakens warm feelings for the alien in the body of her husband. Between them there is a romantic relationship and, despite the infertility, Jenny becomes pregnant from him.
Having rescued a stranger a couple of times from the hands of the policemen who had almost caught him, Jenny safely transports the stranger to the place of departure. He leaves her, but leaves his knowledge and the genes of her husband's unborn boy.
