The inhabitants of the colourful planet glam are not happy. They are fed up with the Kwarzs crashing their
parties all the time. They decide to get rid of them by transporting them to a place where they won‘t
be able to wreck things as easily. So little Kwarz ends up in a destroyed town on earth where he
meets the depressed inhabitants. He tries to communicate by provoking them, however all seems
hopeless for the little kwarz - will he find a way out?
