Two space cadets crash-land on a desert planet, where an evil wizard seeks the ultimate power to take over the world. Although the movie borrows some background footage from Star Wars, the plot is mostly unrelated.
The production team decided to market the film primarily to older children, and to cut the running time by about 1 hour because the studio was concerned that the 2-1/2 hour length of the original cut--far longer than the typical 75-minute Turkish film--would hurt the film's market potential. This resulted in the film's disjointed and frenetic pacing, its emphasis on action, and its lack of on-screen plot exposition, with major plot points only being explained in voiceover.
The film was reportedly embraced eagerly by its youthful target market, and was very successful in Turkey.

There was a 92 minute version, with the opening credits superimposed over the Star Wars footage, and additional scenes. This version was put out on a German Betamax tape.
