Genre:
science fiction

Synopsis:
An alien space ship lands on Earth for the first time and their frightening appearance causes apprehension among the human crowd. Their language is indecipherable, their gestures appear menacing, and the panicked human crowd suggests possible violent responses. A small child with a toy rocket is fascinated by the visitors and walks up from the crowd to the space ship hatch, where an alien child appears with a toy and the two children exchange toys, being free of the prejudices which cause adults to fear the unknown.
