Professor Raisin, a bald, world-famous geneticist, his less-renowned brother Bruno and his attractive assistant Martha have for several years been testing a wide range of chemical substances in the hope of discovering a unique mix that could stimulate hair growth.

Professor Raisin intends to prove evolution can be accelerated “here and now”, starting with single cell of his hair.

At the same time, in the kingdom of a distant galaxy, extending along the edge of misty Andromeda, the King Father catches his son smoking a cigar-which could be fatal for the kingdom. A single puff of tobacco smoke, you see, may lead to the anti-evolution of the kingdom's population.

Fortunately, the boy inhales only a small amount of smoke, causing him to de-evolve only to the stage of a bull. The King Father punishes his son severely by sending him to the planet Earth, which is known to be covered with grass of the poorest quality in the entire galaxy. He will have to graze on it for seven years in order to come to his senses and learn to adapt to society.

Accidentally, or perhaps not, the prince-bull finds himself in the professor Raisin's laboratory, only to become the object of his experiments. And at this point, stories of evolution and anti-evolution fatally interwine…

  • Leipzig DOK Festival 1999 - Prize of the Ministry of Environment (winner)
