  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Somewhere in outer space, a strange vehicle crash-lands on planet Perdide. Claude, the pilot, is injured, but he's able to warn his friend Jaffar and tell his little son Piel to flee to the hills before the dreaded hornets attack. Hidden in the undergrowth, Piel's only means of communication is a microphone linked to Jaffar's spaceship.
