A team of explorers, led by the heroic Captain Avanti Planetaros, take a “sky ship” to Mars and discover its inhabitants are peace-loving vegans! One of the earliest space operas, this Danish outer-space adventure is beautifully shot with impressive production design and a message of goodwill for all Earthlings.
