Lilo is a lonely little Hawaiian girl who adopts a small ugly 'dog' from the pound, whom she names Stitch. Stitch is a cranky, destructive genetic experiment who has escaped from an alien planet and crash-landed on Earth -- but to Lilo, he's the perfect addition to her tiny family. Through her love, faith and belief in "ohana" (the Hawaiian concept of family), Lilo helps unlock Stitch's heart and gives him the one thing he was never designed to have -- the ability to love someone else.
