A wild and surreal outer space adventure. A mid-80s mash-up of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, ALIEN, and Edgar Rice Burrough's TARZAN. In the year 6470, a husband and wife team of explorers receive a mysterious distress signal from an astronaut who disappeared decades earlier. They leave their son on board ship to search for the missing astronaut - but fate intervenes, their own ship crashes - leaving their son alone - or is he?
