AlieNation is a short film depicting radical and absurd relationship between different form of beings in a distance planet. Physical abusive behavior is not acceptable in our society and we surely do not appreciate such act of violence. Nevertheless, being bullied and cast off for being different happens in every corner of the world...even in far-far away planets in the galaxy. Alienation attitude is intolerable as we condemn it as an improper and bigoted conduct. Try to imagine yourself being such different in physical appearance that the sight of you makes everyone around you cringe, ignore and make fun of you. This is the tragic case of Radio boy.


Radio boy is a strange, mechanical creature created into an alien world far away from Earth. This planet and its inhabitants, the AlieNation, are bizarre fictional creatures. They are composed of organic and peculiar forms, like a pair of lungs with feet, or a creature with a huge tongue as his face. To these creatures, the mechanic form of the Radio boy is completely alien. After Radio boy is created as the result of an accident in the factory, Radio boy finds himself hard to fit into the world of the AlieNation. After a series of unfortunate events, Radio boy discovers his one ability that truly amazes everyone around him is his power to receive and play music in a planet that is without melody. Nonetheless everything return to the original state once Radio boy loses his ability.
