A warm-hearted homage to the inventive, low-budget space operas of the 1950s, director Giordano Giulivi's sepia-toned sci-fi adventure follows a fair-haired scientist and his faithful but dimwitted co-pilot as they blast off into space on a mission to conquer a mysterious alien menace. A bizarre television signal has rendered the majority of the Italian populace brain-dead, rendering a rural scientist named Bobby Joe that last hope for humanity. Upon discovering a cable leading into the clouds, Bobby Joe constructs an interstellar cable car and recruits his longtime friend Jim Bob to come aboard as his co-pilot. As the adventurous pair travels thousands of light miles through some of the darkest corners of the cosmos, they prepare to confront the source of this strange digital plague.
