An unlikely hero sets out to travel by land, sea and air round all the attractions of a planet converted into a gigantic petrochemical funfair... and beyond. Fourth instalment in the animation project Bendito Machine, started in 2006 by the Zumbakamera studio (headed from Majorca by Jossie Malis), which has since then dedicated this series of works to a string of beings who have populated their world of machines, in which they place their trust to do everything and without which it seems they would be unable to function. Such dependence also wreaks a fair amount of havoc in their everyday lives. A sweet and amusing tale about the life of beings not as far removed from those who inhabit the planet Earth as it might seem.
