The short La septième planète tells the story of a man fallen on the Earth. The main character walks and wonders around, he observes the daily routine of the city traffic. Then, he visits another planet where he mets a guzzler, so he turned melancholic, then another planet where a businessman is so busy that he didn't dare to look at him ... Case quotes “Le Petit Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupery and edits the sequences as in an old silent movie in a way that the sequences alternates with written texts and dialogues while a piano soundtrack marks the feeling of the narrated events: finally, this fable is critic and mockery of our current times.
