In this animated Japanese sci-fi film, a homeless youth is struck by a car and rendered unconscious. He soon finds himself traveling to the planet Hope with Dr. Gulliver, a tin-soldier colonel, a dog, and a crow. Before they arrive, they are hauled off course by a princess who tells them that Hope has been dominated by insane robots. Strictly by chance the boy and the doctor discover that the evil robots melt if water touches them. Using water pistols, the heroes save the planet. Later the street urchin awakens and goes on his way. Somehow the future seems a little brighter after the dream.
