I love you, my Birdy.

I love you too.

Where is your amulet?

I lost it.

Don't let them push you around, Candy.

Are you a chicken?

The bowling machine started

working on its own again.

It's like...

a huge magnetic field

is directed towards it.

I'm falling asleep.

It's been a hard day.


someone is trying to send us a signal.

Who, my Birdy?

I don't know.


the spaceship.

People say...

that the spaceship has

been rusting in the sky

since the beginning of the big war.

Very interesting!

It's a Samurai Turtle figurine,

made in the third century

and worn by Molegon

warriors as a lucky amulet.

Industrially made from a rubber mold

with acrylic paint

it is believed that the

inspiration dates back

to pre-apocalypse years.

What do you want to do?

Sell it? Pawn it?

I wanna sell it.

How much?

56000 Crols.

I've seen several of these in recent years.

They're very difficult to sell nowadays.

I'll give you 1500 Crols.

Rethink your offer, Grandpa.


That's funny!

You think you can intimidate

me with Gamo Turbo?

Not even a child would be scared!



What happened, my candy?


I'm dizzy.

Sometimes I think

that maybe

I'm not strong enough for you.

One day I might get killed in that desert.

My Birdy.


Who loves you like I do?


I'll visit the witch. Ask

her what's happening.

Are you OK?

You're acting strange.

I'm OK.

The design is believed to date

back to the pre-apocalypse.

Do you want to sell it?

Yes, wanna sell it.

How much do you want?

93000 Crols seems good for me...

I'm interested in acquiring a "Max

Steel" but not for that price.

I can offer you 2600 Crols.

What about 5500?

3500 is my last offer!

I have no choice.

It's a total rip-off you loan shark.

Let's sign the contract!


The ducks are coming back.

I don't see any ducks.

What do you want?

I need your help.

How are you gonna pay me?

This is supposed to pay for your wedding.

I can't accept it.

But I need to find Santa Claus.

My back is old for that job.

Be strong! Come on!

Clean that side!

It's enough?

Continue! Thank you!

I see what you see.

Santa Claus is inside a dark hole.

What else do you see?

There's an abandoned pond.

It's inside a park.

Where is this?

It's in the old city.

I'll never get there!

It's so far.

I don't know the way.

The train will guide you.

The train?

The train.

spaceship is turning on.

Is that true?

There is someone up there...


Who's there?

You ask too many questions!

So my Birdy is right.

I should go!

The day is coming!

Where are you going?

You forgot your record!

I don't need it anymore! Take it!

Don't need it!

There's that sound again.

I'm sure

that the spaceship is turning on.

I know it.

Who's there?

Where are you?

It's a dream.

Don't be afraid.

Santa Claus will give

you anything you want.

Do you know?

Santa will make it real.

It can't be true.

I am...

a peaceful man.

I'm not looking for trouble.

Do you know how to turn it back on?

Are you deaf?

Why don't you speak?

The cat got your tongue.

You know...

I'm not from here

and I don't belong here.

I remember where I came from.

Crevices in the rocks.

Big canyons.

And within these cracks,

caves carved in quartz

where we lived

protected from the frozen winds

that flowed over the surface.

the former United States.

His music was electrifying.

Where did you find it?

It was a gift.

Do you want to sell it?

I'll sell it for 132000 Crols.

That's an old price...

I can't accept it nowadays.

How much would you give me?

I'll give you 40% of

whatever I sell it for.

Wanna trick me?

What's going on inside the spaceship?

The spaceship? What spaceship?

Quit pretending.

You know what I'm talking about!

I really don't know.

Someone is working up there.

You know what?

Take this as guarantee for the album.

What's this?

The train will guide you to the city.

What a joke!

I recognize the Molegon warrior in you.

But the war ended centuries ago.

The spaceship is turning back on.

My love and I will got back to my planet!

A journey through the limits

of this strange universe.

Nebulae, planets with rings

of impossible colors

comets with the longest tails!

Then one day, the morning breeze.

A day in spring.

Fields of wheat.

The noise of tractors in the distance.

Take the baby!

I've seen this lion before.

Remember to follow the lions!

Now I see!

I'm going to be a father!

My son will be the new king of the stars.

They're coming for you, my son!

You're so handsome.

So resistant.

Yes... Please...

He'll be our son.

Our son.

My love!

He's coming for me.

Tell me your wish, little girl.

What do you want?

The car, the bear, whatever you want.

You can't hide your wish from Santa Claus!

Why aren't you telling me?

I'm not a good girl.

I'm not.

during the brief period of peace

Soon after he was forgotten.

It is believed that, before the apocalypse,

inside the pyramids of Cheops

there was another Andromeda

Baby living there.

Where did you find it?

Someone forgot it.

nside an old wagon.

How much do you want for it?

Enough for a seat in the spaceship.

Pardon me?


What are you doing here?

Tell me, little boy.

Have you been a good boy?

Santa Claus...

with the greatest respect

I'm not a kid anymore.

I've travelled a long way.

And now

that you've reached this point.

Have you already written your list?

I don't...

But I don't need it, Santa.

I know my wish.

You must write the list,

and send it by post.

My assistant will receive it

Then we'll prepare the presents

for Christmas time.

You get it?
