Synopsis: "We start the story in the household of an older couple, Millie and George. George has just had a stroke, and Millie reminisces about their life together. George was an architect with many dreams. Most of those dreams went into building a fantastical tree house for the children. George stopped dreaming in 1951. Millie never got the whole story, but it seems that aliens really did crash in Roswell and he was tapped to create an unbreakable prison for them. It devastated him and he relived that feeling with his stroke." --Natalie Waddell-Rutter
