Situated along space route 246666, the interstellar expressway no longer has the traffic it once had, and customers to the Sand Sand 33 are few and far between, giving cause for Noa to file for reassignment back to earth. Meanwhile his wife Noe has been secretly planning a renovation, and alien contractor she wants to hire has affections for her. One day, Noa's ex-girlfriend and her alien husband drop in.

By an intergalactic road, which is now pretty defunct due to its rival broader expressway, lies a hamburger joint, managed by a husband and wife and an eccentric cook. Like the intergalactic road now serving to only a few alien specimen and that is subjected to an inspection for demolition, the restaurant is getting more and more desolated with every passing day. Also, relationship of husband and wife is also in question, challenged by old and new lovers.

Film basically adds intergalactic prostitution, love triangles, and tiny bits of masochism and food porn into 1950's American future depictions. Its roots in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Caro- Jeunet inventions are pretty visible yet not annoying at all.

Film's solutions to otherwise complicated technical problems are simple, smooth and funny. And invented in same manner, contains bunch of imaginative aliens and entities (also dilemma of Captain socks) that are good to see.
