How to return home when you get stranded on an alien desert planet populated with telepathic sociopaths using rusty, advanced technology. The result is a comedy that combines slapstick humour with some clever puns and a believable, intelligent plot.
- Evgeni Leonov (Wef - Chatlanian) is a dead ringer for Bob Hoskins, and Yuriy Yakovlev (Bi - Patsak) for John Cleese!
- Even though the Plukanians are telepathic and use a technology not yet invented on Earth, the social state is pathetic due to the scarcity of resources. It shows how human history does proceed in cycles even though technology might be continuously improving.
