Slaves and masters dominate the narrative of the faraway world of Ygam. Set around the lifespan of Terr, a minute human shaped Om slave, and pet, of the giant blue alien Draags. Escaping into the wilderness and with a device used for intellectual advancement of the Draags, Terr finds refuge and support from fellow Oms and using the learning tool, he finds that knowledge is power and then sets to use the new found knowledge to revolt against the Draag masters...
A Sublime Trip to a Fine New World.

During production, René Laloux
, the only non-Czech working on this film, was almost removed from the production crew. The Czech Production staff wanted a "nationalistic" feel to its production and wanted Josef Kábrt
(1920-1989), the film's character graphics designer, to take the part of Director. This never happened and was apparently an "inspiration of the times". See more
