This artistically vibrant film speculates about how things look on other planets in our galaxy. On a dramatic journey through the solar system, the film presents breathtaking cratered landscapes and nebulae, inaccessible lava-filled wastelands with meteoroids flying across the horizon. On a more informational level, the film explains why Mars was worshiped as the God of War and reveals that the Morning and Evening Stars in the earthly sky are actually planets. Finally, since the film is all about hypotheses, speculations are made about whether Phobos and Deimons might in fact be artificial satellites created by unknown inhabitants of the universe.
