Join Space Rabbit and Rufus Longbottom on an adventure to the ends of the earth in search of a family. A space rabbit with incredible powers finds friendship with a 91-year-old man. Together they face danger in search of family - and finding a way home. When Space Rabbit's planet is destroyed by a meteorite she escapes in the nick of time. A blast sends her hurtling towards Earth, where she lands outside the Tandaria Carehome, frightened and alone. Inside is Rufus Longbottom, an old gentleman desperate for one last adventure. He sees a pulsing light outside the window and investigates... So begins a journey of a lifetime in which the unlikely pair go to the ends of the earth to find a family. Inspired by the writings and creations of KS2 children in schools, Filament's show uses music and a bit of magic to delight and enchant.
