Alfie is one of Caspar’s friends.
The bus crash
Alfie arrives at school with Caspar, who is bullied in the hall by Monty. After Mr. Edwards intervenes, they board the bus, which crashes off a cliff when Caspar has a seizure and Mr. Edwards takes his eyes off the road.
The kids escape the crash with minor injuries, though Mr. Edwards isn't as fortunate. When the sun sets, they set up camp, start a fire, and choose leadership. Alfie votes against Monty, but he wins by majority vote.
After Monty loses control of the group, they decide to follow Caspar's lead and climb the cliff back to the road, where they find the scattered remains of a fallen satellite. Monty tries to stop them from going home, but the group sides with Caspar.
The group come across an abandoned food truck on the road and run towards the back, where they find snacks and drinks. Up front, Alfie finds a radio and tries to get a signal. For a moment, they listen to an emergency broadcast until Monty destroys the radio after it begins emitting an ear-piercing sound.
Alfie, Darwin, Monty, Caspar, and Jamila are stuck in the countryside until catching a ride home with a woman named Zoe, who tells them that aliens have invaded the planet. She drops them off just outside the gates, and they split off into different directions, all heading home.
