A young pilot crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert where he meets a child dressed as a prince insisting that he draw for him. The child tells the pilot that he comes from another planet, asteroid B-612, and he is on journey to understand his feelings of affection for an overbearing rose that bloomed on the star a year prior. The little prince recounts feats from an intergalactic adventure and tells of various characters each of whom face their own sort of selfishness. He befriends a fox on earth, and makes a deadly agreement with a sly snake. He teaches the pilot how to express his feelings and imagination beyond what is expected of an adult in the modern world.
