In 1947 a UFO crash landed in Roswell, USA. There were no known alien survivors.
Over sixty years later two unique children from very different backgrounds discover they have abilities far beyond the ordinary. Only a secret US agency knows why.
The children, Eric and Ursula, embark on an exciting journey to find the answers. Answers that lie in old space debris scattered across Europe.
Their every move is monitored and a deadly game of cat and mouse begins. Will they find the secrets to their shared past? Or will the agency find them first?
