The man from Mars comes home
The first manned mission to Mars had been thought lost for decades, the crew assumed to have been killed in the line of duty. Twenty-five years later, a new expedition discovers that there was a lone survivor… Valentine Michael Smith, born on the ship and subsequently raised by Martians, is the very first ‘Man from Mars’. Returning to Earth, Smith finds himself in a world that is dangerously incomprehensible to him, surrounded by people who wish to exploit his unique status and use him for political advantage. When a kindly nurse unwittingly performs a sacred act of Martian bonding by offering Smith a glass of water, a series of events is put into motion that will see this man from Mars chasing after universal truths – survival, love, and the freedom to express it.
