When Elly Marlina turned eighteen her parents left her abandoned along with her five year old sister. With a life full of dreams and hope, Elly’s dreams quickly changed when she re-arranged her life to care for her younger sibling. As an act of protection and to hide the truth, Elly told her sister that aliens had abducted their parents but they would still be able to contact them through the use of letters being released into the sky. But, years have passed, and its time for Elly to tell the truth about their parents abandonment.
Although their life seems rugged and destroyed – there’s a beauty that can be found in some of the worst situations. For Elly what used to be her childhood dreams changed: to see her little sister’s dreams come true.
So, as the story unfolds, we see the bond between two sisters, the beauty that is in the broken, and how the truth of a story, is always better than a lie. Even if it is to protect the ones you love.
