Aliens have landed in Boyle. When crop circles are discovered in their wake, Martin and Padraic couldn't be more thrilled, with Pad summing it up: "I haven't been this excited since I enlisted to fight Desert Storm." And no sooner have the lads embarked on a UFO hunt than Donkey Kong mysteriously disappears.

As Martin tells local media the mule has been abducted by extraterrestrials, the town council goes into crisis mode, fearing the gentle image they've created of Boyle will be destroyed. When Martin's tall tale captures the attention of a national television station, the council and the church tries to strong-arm Liam into suppressing his son's story, threatening his livelihood and adding to the family's financial woes. Will Liam side with Martin or the leaders of Boyle?
