Synopsis/Details: 

SEBASTIAN YOUNGFIELD (11), is sailing the world with his parents when their trip takes a dramatic turn in the South Pacific. A storm blows in hard and fast leaving Sebastian adrift at sea in a dinghy and his parents shipwrecked on a rocky isle.

Following days at sea, Sebastian awakens to a nip on his toe by a strange green pelican who alerts him to a nearby atoll. Sebastian then survives crossing a treacherous reef and finds himself on a tiny island across a lagoon from a much larger one. Additional encounters with green pelicans lead to Sebastian’s discovery that they are actually an alien species called “Dorrgroos”. Eons ago, the peaceful Dorrgroos were being chased by an evil alien species, the “Zeppendulars”, when both of their spacecrafts crashed into the atoll. Submerged beneath the tiny island, the Dorrgroos are unable to repower their craft with solar energy. The Zeppendulars’ ship on the large island has finally been unearthed and will soon be ready to depart. Capturing the evil enemy Zeppendulars’ spacecraft is the only hope for the Dorrgroos to return home.

As a means to sustain nourishment over the years, the Dorrgroos have shape-shifted into several other creatures encountered on their island: a prehistoric amphibious Ichthyosaur; a Polynesian warrior; a coconut crab; a sea turtle; and a marooned female aviator, AMELIA (39). Sebastian and his hosts take creative steps to communicate, eventually reanimating Amelia whose strong and adventurous personality proves ideally suited for planning an epic battle that can get both Sebastian and the Dorrgroos on a course for home. Or end all life on the atoll, including Sebastian’s.
