Joe Norman just wants the ordinary things in life; a job he doesn’t hate; a place to call home and nice girl to settle down with. He’s just like the rest of us. But this is also the story of a young man who was told by his father Bill, on his death bed, that he is an alien and must continue his dying species.
Joe goes out of his way to meet and win the heart of a ‘compatible’ human mate. He finds and falls in love with Maria but once he tells her the truth she thinks he’s crazy. And he more he tries to convince her, the closer he gets to losing her. Meanwhile intergalactic bounty hunters, disguised as human resource specialists visiting Joe’s office, are in hot pursuit of Joe. Maria then discovers by accident the truth hidden in Joe’s old home movies and joins Joe in his attempt to escape to his home planet.
EARTHBOUND is a Sci-fi comedy starring Rafe Spall (Prometheus, One Day, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead), Jenn Murray (Dorothy Mills) and David Morrissey (Blitz, Centurion, Nowhere Boy, The Walking Dead).
