Alisa Seleznyova and her father professor Seleznyov are traveling in space. They meet their old friend archaeologist Gromozeka, who's just discovered a planet all inhabitants of which died. It became known that they discovered a virus of hostility, got infected and killed each other. Gromozeka also discovered that they had left the virus on Earth 26000 years ago, and the virus is about to become loose. The only chance to save the Earth is to travel 26000 years back in time - to the epoch when witches, dragons and magicians lived along with usual people. Written by

I acquired the tape to this Russian children's adventure a few months ago in part became I am translating the author's stories. Alice is the Harry Potter of Russian literature, with about a dozen books out since 1967. Three of them, this, 'Gost'ya is budushchego,' and 'Taina tret'ej planety' have been filmed or animated. There are some differences. Characters have been condensed to compact the story. The character of Gromozeka, the space archaeologist, has, in the books, tentacles, seven eyes arranged on his head in a fan, and an insatiable thirst for valerian drops. In this film he was portrayed by a human actor (who also appeared in 'Gost'ta...') and resembles the cowardly lion. Pavel Arsonov, who died some years ago, also filmed "Volshchebnik izimrudnogo goroda," or the "Wizard of the Emerald City," from the famous Russian children's tale.
