Tonatiu, a distant planet in the Pleiades is plagued by diseases brought from Earth. Two agents from Tonatiu are sent back to Earth, in order to find a mysterious South American tree called "bororo" that is mentioned in the notes of Czech adventurer Alberto Vojtech Fric (1882-1944). An extract from this tree is able to kill many species of terrestrial bacteria within an astonishingly short time. However, they are not the only ones that are interested in the phenomenal attributes of this tree, and their mission ends tragically...

A movie that has stayed in my memories since childhood. It had a very specific, mysterious atmosphere that I couldn't forget. As an adult, I would rate it more critically, but still, it is not an ordinary film. It has a great music composed by Petr Hapka, and the grace of young Božidara Turzonovová (as an extra-terrestrial woman) also adds a lot to its exceptional impressiveness.
