Prince Albert has been brought up in the lap of luxury. The more material goods he has, the less satisfied he feels. Because of his greedy nature, he becomes known as Prince Veut-Tout. One day, while speeding on his motorbike, he almost runs over an old man. This event triggers a sense of remorse and causes him to re-evaluate his life. One night, looking up at the stars, Prince Albert decides to become a space explorer. He heads off into the heavens in his spaceship. Years later he returns to his home with his new-found alien friends.
