Phil (Rob Stefaniuk), an alien, crashes into a small town in Northern Ontario, befriends a young boy and a super-intelligent beaver (voiced by Joe Flaherty), and quickly develops a heavy drinking problem. Phil is an innocent lost in the wilderness. Surrounded by hunters, prostitutes, an ex-CIA operative, a bartender named "Wolf", and other Northern misfits, Phil soon becomes close with the local bar band.

However, agents at the "Top Secret American UFO Base" – led by "The General" – capture Phil, and he does a short stint in prison. Afterwards, Phil finds Jesus and joins the bar band as their lead singer. When the General learns that Phil is performing miracles on a touring pilgrimage to Niagara Falls, he orders Quebecois assassin Madame Madame to kill the alien and his band.
