An odd couple of outsiders hit the road on a border-defying search for their place in the universe


Peter is an introverted New Yorker with dwarfism who prefers to hide from the world in his city apartment. But an unexpected visit from his upbeat, eccentric neighbor Winona forces him out of his shell and onto an impromptu road trip. Their destination? What she believes to be the site of an upcoming alien visitation in the wilderness of rural Canada.

UNIDENTIFIED OBJECTS follows the odd couple’s increasingly surreal odyssey, in which they encounter bickering lesbian cosplayers, shroom-addled survivalists, and even extraterrestrial highway cops. The further they go and the more their trauma comes to light, the clearer it becomes that the only thing scarier than being abducted by aliens is being alone in the universe.
