A psychedelic soap-opera set in the Parco Archeologico dell’Incompiuto Siciliano in Giarre. Due to a mechanical failure, an ectoplasmic extraterrestial is forced to make an emergency landing on a Mediterranean island on Planet Earth. A local shepherd looking for his lost flock becomes a UFO witness. In a euphoric panic, he runs into town to alert the local TV station.
In the meantime, in the little village of Giarre, life goes on: politics, exercise, sexual adventures and family quarrels.
The alien (Marc Augeé) takes the form of a dog so he can inconspicuously inspect the strange planet. In the meantime, the village is getting ready for the official opening of the new archeological park, Incompiuto Siciliano (Sicilian Unfinished).
There’s major agitation, it’s on the TV news: word is that part of the park, a column, has disappeared and rematerialized in the Italian Pavillion at the Biennale di Venezia.
