Family Flicks Film Series: Hyper Sapien: People from Another Star

Hoping to find evidence that earthlings aren’t as bad as the rest of the solar system believes, extra-terrestrial sisters, Robyn and Tavy jump ship in Wyoming accompanied by a super-intelligent fuzz ball named Kirbi. Befriended by a teenage cowboy, they work to save a beautifully photographed natural landscape under threat from developers in this delightful interstellar family adventure with a still-timely environmental message.
