SYNOPSIS:  A down-and-out construction worker named Nada finds a pair of sunglasses which allows him to see extraterrestrials and their alien mind-control messages...and they're everywhere! They live and work among us. He manages to convice a couple people, then discovers a secret underground human movement to thwart the alien invaders. Nada joins their effort to blow up the alien mental transmitters, so that normal people can see the aliens for what they truly are: butt-ugly.
