A visitor from another world brings fun and friendship into the lives of three elderly mid-town Americans.
Before going out, George (Richard Mulligan – Soap) always promises his wife he’ll bring home a glass of stardust. Living in a fantasy world, hardware store keeper George spends most of his days in the local café, sharing stories and dreams with his two best friends. Then, one day, a stranger from the city, Arnold Zimmerman (Beau Bridges – Stargate SG-1), visits the store looking for a specific piece of machinery. As it’s Thanksgiving, George lets him have it for free. The stranger is so touched that he lets him in on a secret. He is not from the city at all; in fact, he is from another planet, but his spaceship has broken down and he is stranded...
George introduces Arnold to his friends and once the ship is repaired the men buy a field on which to build a launch pad. When the locals hear of this, they assume that George has gone mad. As the relationship develops, it becomes clear that the two men have touched each other’s lives forever. And with the help of his new friend, George might even be able to keep that promise to his wife...
