When a pilot crashes in the desert, he is surprised to find that he’s not alone. The first night, he comes across a strange little fellow who he calls the little prince. Soon he begins to hear about all of the little prince’s adventures—the small planet which he came from where there is a rose he loves and three little volcanoes; his short visits to other asteroids with the king, the vain man, the drunkard, the businessman, the lamplighter, and the geographer; and his journey to earth where he discovers other roses and tames a fox. Suffering from thirst, the pilot and the little prince go in search of water and find a well in the desert, which is nearby the place where the little prince came to earth nearly a year before. On the anniversary, the little prince returns there and, with the help of a venomous snake, slips out of this world and back to his own.
