CODEPENDENT LESBIAN SPACE ALIEN SEEKS SAME tracks the adventures, misadventures and experiences of three aliens from the planet Zots, sent down to Earth on a mission to rid themselves of romantic emotions, which are considered toxic to their planet's atmosphere. They are told to have their hearts broken on Earth, where such heartbreak is considered a given. Two of the aliens, Zylar (promiscuous and sassy) and Barr (codependent and clutchy) fall into an unfortunate romance with each other, but Zoinx, the third, meets Jane, an Earthling of mild manners who lives an uneventful life and works in a stationery store. Unaware that the sudden object of her affection is an alien (despite her bald head and monotone speech), Jane falls hard for Zoinx. The feeling is mutual. Meanwhile, two undercover government agents are following Jane in order to find the spaceship and cover up the existence of the aliens. The Senior Agent has been working for years, finding himself passed over again and again for promotions, for reasons he is too dense to understand. The Rookie Agent is mysterious and focused, and something is obviously different about him. Their bizarre, comical espionage is another of the film's odd couplings, and reveals itself to be something other than what it seems. By film's end, the espionage car has one less agent, and the spaceship has one more commuter, in this original mash-up of lo-fi New York City romantic comedy and a sci-fi B-movie spoof.
