From the DVD cover:
It is Fellini on an Ed Wood budget. This sci-fi comedy is an outrageous concoction of sexual fantasy, conspiracy theory, and religious satire. It begins when Lucinda Hall (Stephene Russell) deciphers a centuries old book penned by a mad Mormon prophet. In its pages she discovers a diabolical plot hatched by Nehor, (Karen Black) a peeved alien from the planet Kolob. As Lucinda frantically tries to uncover "the secret of the bees" she is sucked into a strange world filled with spacemen, polygamists, and angels.

Salt Lake City resident Trent Harris has had a long and fulfilling relationship mining the Mormon culture that surrounds him, as Plan 10 from Outer Space perhaps demonstrates most vividly. A surreal concoction of the strangest components of LDS pioneer culture, this film is one of the most visually dense in the Mormon cinematic canon. Never before--or since--have we seen such thoroughly pioneer-designed space aliens, or heard such an enthusiastically subversive disco version of "If You Could Hie to Kolob."
Plan 10 is also one of the strongest feminist films on Mormonism, as it not only inverts the camera's traditional male gaze to a female voyeur, but the insidious Plan 10 itself is simply to place the women in charge.
Some of the material appears purposely offensive to mainstream Latter-day Saints.
