The alien vuvv have invaded Earth, but it doesn't exactly appear like an invasion--they, squat, coffee table-shaped beings, brought free advanced technology and cured every illness imaginable. Nevertheless, their technology eliminated most human jobs, putting Adam's parents out of work. Adam and his girlfriend, Chloe, decide to feed the vuvv's love for what they think of as "classic" Earth culture from the 1950s and stage pay-per-minute format 1950s-style outings. However, Adam and Chloe's relationship disintegrates, and Adam has to decide how much he is willing to give the vuvv what they want.
