Extra Terrestres (Extra Terrestrials)

Teresa, an astrophysicist, goes back to her family in Puerto Rico to invite them to her wedding. This is not an easy task, as she has an ongoing battle with her father. As tensions grow from mounting frustrations, her anxious fiancé becomes impatient and pays the family an unexpected visit.
