This Swiss story of a young man on a wondrous and strange trip around the world has more in common with medieval mystery plays than with most modern films, as it is rich in symbols and low in explanatory materials. In some unexplained past, Stella Da Falla (Andrea Savoidelli), riding horseback and hunting with a bow and arrow, meets with his father, who is wearing armor, and tells him it is time for him to experience the world. In a more modern setting, he is in Nepal with a teacher-figure. Later, he goes on a mysterious river journey, meeting what appear to be hippies. Many more amusing and enigmatic adventures take place up to his final meeting with his father, who by now is dying.
