Scrub farebbe qualsiasi cosa piuttosto che passare un’estate intera a dare una mano alla nonna, in un posto fuori dal mondo senza Internet né cellulare, amici o allenamenti di basket. Il suo entusiasmo, già sotto le scarpe, precipita se possibile ancora più in basso quando scopre che l’albergo gestito dalla nonna, l’Intergalactic Bed & Breakfast, trabocca di arredi fantascientifici ed è frequentato da turisti a dir poco bizzarri.
All’ennesima quotidiana stranezza, la nonna è costretta a rivelare a Scrub la verità: il suo albergo ospita solo turisti alieni, che si teletrasportano sulla Terra, esclusivissima meta di villeggiatura, per trascorrere le proprie vacanze mimetizzati tra gli esseri umani. Naturalmente l’affare deve restare segreto, ma non tutti nel vicinato si fanno i fatti loro e quando lo sceriffo Tate comincia ad avere dei sospetti, Scrub dovrà aiutare la nonna a evitare una crisi diplomatica interstellare. Un’avventura fantascientifica che vi farà venire i crampi dalle risate!
