We love telling the story of a complicated, gray-area relationship with the place you’re from. After living through the tumultuous waves of recent years, there can be a lot for us to unpack dealing with some of our hometown’s decisions and actions. ABDUCTION allows us to laugh through the chaos with a colorful backdrop of extraterrestrial science fiction fun.
