Set in NYC, the sole character, "M,” recalls encounters with extraterrestrial life forms. Are the surrealistic visions haunting him an accurate recollection of an abduction, part of a drug-induced nightmare, or the beginning of a mental breakdown?  M mirrors builder Howard Hughes’s own mental battles at this nexus of the fragile mind and sky.
