If only Moon Man knew just how much children loved him! But he’s not even remotely aware, he’s just sitting on the moon, bored stiff, in his lonely silver sphere...
One night, a shooting star whizzes through outer space towards the moon. Moon Man grabs the speeding comet by the tail, hitching a ride to earth! This ‘attack from outer space’ sets alarm bells in the presidential headquarters. The President is furious! He has just conquered earth, defeated all his enemies! Now his dominion is being attacked by aliens from another planet! The only traces they find of the intruder are silvery footprints near the edge of the crater’s impact.
While escaping the President and his soldiers, Moon Man sets off on a journey, where he will marvel at the many wonders the Earth has to offer and realise how much children love and need him. - Galway Film Fleadh 2013
