Two alien spacecraft fight above Earth's atmosphere. One of them is shot down and falls on Jackson, Missouri. The U.S. Army enters the scene and, not wanting to take any chances, decides to kill whoever is in the ship. As an helicopter shoots missiles, Superman stops them. It turns out the only person in the ship is a baby. Nearby, a dying alien tells Superman to protect the baby girl. Her name is Aria and she is a princess. Aria projects images of her escape from her world into Superman's mind, explaining her origins. Suddenly, the people who want Aria dead attack Superman. After a short chase, Superman and Aria hide in a forest. Superman promises to protect Aria.
To keep Aria safe, Superman takes her to church and puts Aria under the care of a nun. Then, the baby's pursuers find them and a battle ensues. Superman defeats the leader of the attackers and saves the nun and Aria when one of the ships destroys the church. After the danger has passed, Superman leaves Aria with the nun, saying that in time, someone will come for her.
