The film is directed by Stephan Schesch, starring Tomi Ungerer, Katharina Thalbach, and Ulrich Tukur.

Adapted from Tomi Ungerer’s children book, “Moon Man” is an animated cartoon full of poetry and inventions about a young astral hero willing to free the planet Earth from a dictator.

A bored Man in the Moon hitches a ride to Earth on the tails of a passing comet and starts to explore the fantastical creatures and sights of a new planet. But all is not well – the Moon Man’s absence from his post means that all the world’s children are unable to sleep. Before the President can capture him, they must join forces to return him to his rightful place in the sky.
