LAZER TEAM – Synopsis
When four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit, they soon find themselves responsible for the fate of the entire planet.  With this new alien equipment genetically bound to them, and the government hot on their heels, the foursome have no choice but to work together as one to save humanity.  All they have to do it learn to use a strange alien device meant for only one person, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process.  They may not be strong, smart, or talented… but they’re Lazer Team.
