There were no recovery groups for abductees in 1973, and there are hardly any now.  

Calvin was very much shamed and 'othered' for telling "the truth" as he experienced it. 

One minute Calvin Parker had his youth, his vigor, and his confidence - but with the appearance of an alien craft over the Pascagoula River everything that ever mattered was taken away in a flash.  

This is Calvin's story of redemption and return.

Calvin and his older co-worker Charlie Hickson were abducted into an alien spacecraft while fishing at night on the Pascagoula River in Mississippi. Paralyzed by unknown forces and taken against their will, the otherworldly experience of these two men became one of the most iconic abduction stories in UFO history.

RAMBLING MAN

The majority of the story is set during the 70’s, at the height of an unprecedented spike in UFO interest across the country. It is an era of unanswerable questions and unending debates, creating the perfect storm of conditions for word of Calvin’s abduction to catch like wildfire. 

We  capture the frenetic excitement that existed surrounding aliens, depicting an iconic point in American culture when the wonder of the space-age collides with a post-vietnam distrust of authority and inspires millions to look to the night sky with awe and fear. The saturation of UFO’s in media and culture destroys Calvin’s prospects of escaping the notoriety of his abduction.

was taken away in a flash.

Dr. James Harder

Dr. J.Allen Hynek

Within hours of hearing about Calvin's abduction, famous UFO researchers, J.Allen Hynek

(Project Blue Book) and Dr. James Harder flew down to Pascagoula to question and examine

both  Calvin and co-abductee Charlie Hickson. 

 

Hynek's conclusion shook the world:

 

“There’s simply no question in my mind that

these men had a very real, frightening experience…

under no circumstances should these men be ridiculed.

They are absolutely honest. Let's protect them.” 

 

In the aftermath of the alleged abduction, Calvin Parker is not protected. 

He is scrutinized, ridiculed and hunted.  

Unequipped both emotionally and rationally to cope with what happened,

wanting to force the memories from his mind,  Calvin goes underground. 

He moves from town to town like a fugitive.  He even changes his name. 

 

Shame and terror lead to breakdowns and failure. 

Yet after 45 years of running, Calvin Parker finally finds his way out of the darkness. 

A fateful decision in 2018 to reveal, and no longer conceal the unspeakable events of October 13, 1973, ultimately unlocks a lifetime of trauma for Calvin Parker.

Calvin created this cover story to protect himself, yet, ironically, in the end, the secrecy he desired propelled him on a self destructive journey that brought him to the brink of annihilation.

 turned upside down, it's been ripped into pieces,

and for Calvin, it's expanded violently to include a very convincing encounter in Pascagoula, Mississippi with what can only be described as alien beings - extra-terrestials.  

Abduction reports were exceedingly rare. 

In fact, only one had made the national news prior to Pascgoula.

A New Hampshire couple claimed to have been

abdcuted and experimented upon by alien beings in 1961.  

Abduction stories were very rare at this point.  And when famous researcher J ALLEN HUNEK validates calvin enters the frenzied press and the history books.
