Busted-up soldier John Scully
tries to regain control of his life by helping some stranded folks
"From Away" regain the safety of their home planet.
While Pi led the way with the
communicator in one

As Pi took them to the leader, John realized that
he really didn’t know anything at all about these people other than the
fact they were stranded and the baby needed help fast. Where they were
from, why they were here, how their craft was damaged and even the name
of their species were still mysteries.
Pi took the initiative for the introductions.
Standing sideways between the leader and Gert, he pointed to Gert and
whistled, “Mother, this is the multi-species doctor, Gertrude Beck.”
The leader responded, “I am the Mother. I am
responsible for all of these people and the equipment.”
