"A young girl takes it upon herself to stop a vicious rumor about her new best friend. Pip is a 12-year-old girl living with her family in Adelaide who isn't like the other kids she knows - she's smart, serious and likes to watch the skies with her prized telescope. She's also a bit shy and doesn't know what to do about Ben, a neighborhood boy who seems to like her. Rhonnie , a mean-spirited girl in the neighborhood, doesn't much like Pip and doesn't care who knows it. However, Rhonnie discovers someone who bothers her even more when Sally Marshall moves into town. Sally wears dark glasses, reads grown-up books, likes to hang upside down and doesn't have an Australian accent. Sally is obviously not from around these parts, and Rhonnie is convinced this means Sally is a visitor from outer space. Pip finds this ridiculous and accepts a challenge from Rhonnie - either prove conclusively that Sally isn't a space alien, or lose her telescope.
This is a really well made movie and its one that will work on your emotions as there are several scenes that will bring tears to your eyes."
