Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This fairy-tale love story begins with an aged, childless couple who are living peaceably in the countryside when a UFO lands nearby and drops off a small boy dressed in an odd-looking space suit. The couple do not hesitate in adopting the little boy, and when he grows to manhood, he falls in love with the princess of the kingdom and wins her hand in marriage by building a golden bridge. The princess soon sees how great her husband looks without the space suit, so she chucks the offending garb into the fire - and the prince disappears. Distraught and with nowhere to turn, she is magically transported to the space-husband's kingdom where the men are systematically eliminated by the "queen bee" of the planet - and her man is next in line. Will the princess be able to save her love from his dire fate???? Some clues can be pieced together from the animation that is added to the film, the fact that its basic story "The Tale of the Pig" has been around since 1876, and this is, after all, a movie for children.
