It's night. Joakim's parents are in the hospital because his mother is having a baby. Suddenly, a shooting star hunts across the sky, and Mika from the distant planet Eljo lands headfirst in the apple tree. This starts an exciting question and answer game. Because Joakim's world is alien to Mika. With each of his questions, the two approach the mystery of all life and finally learn how it has developed.
