Two evil aliens come to planet Earth on a mission of destruction, and instead end up forming the galaxy's first interplanetary bluegrass folk duo. A massive comet is on a collision course with planet Hondo. When it strikes, all life on that world will be wiped out. Desperate, the Hondonians send heroic General Trius (Nils d'Aulaire) on a mission to seek out a new home amongst the stars. Upon arriving he will unleash a deadly virus capable of destroying all life, thus clearing the way for a massive takeover. Shortly after setting down on planet Earth, however, General Trius is about to set the virus free when he hears the sound of music for the very first time. Entranced, he instead changes his name to Bill, settles down, and starts a family. A few years later, Bill has a regular gig playing bluegrass at a bar owned by Larry (Dee Snider) when inept Hondonian assassin Kevin (Jay Klaitz) arrives on an assignment to complete the failed mission. Instead, Bill and Kevin end up forming the folk duo Future Folk, quickly gaining a loyal following. Meanwhile, with the planned Hondonian takeover of Earth still gaining steam back home, Future Folk must figure out a means of saving their own race without sacrificing another.
