Leon feels like the loneliest kid on earth. After his mother lost her job, she is doing nothing but sitting on the couch. On his way to school, bullies beat him up and the kids at school tease him. Even his teacher thinks he is a weird kid. But one day an UFO lands and Leon makes friends with one of its passengers, whom he calls Walter. The alien is willing to help Leon – a nanochip in Leon’s wrist, good advice and the bravery to speak up turn Leon’s life upside down.

The famous German novelist and columnist Sybille Berg wrote a funny play about friendship, the struggles we have in our lives and how to take action.
