One day a boy finds a plane in his cupboard. He flies his plane higher and higher until he runs out of petrol and lands on the moon. He is frightened, lost and alone until a passing Martian lands there too! Who is the strange Alien? Can they be friends? And will they find their way back home? Sung in English. Running time: 40mins
