A crazy animated film for adults whose hero, the shepherd Youzeck, travels with his flute across the world, also visiting Hell, Paradise and Purgatory.
The hero of this crazy animated film for adults is the shepherd Youzeck, who travels round the world playing his flute. Suddenly he finds himself in Hell. He passes through rooms full of bored devils and also comes across Hell’s garden – Hades, where he sees Prometheus, Tantalus, Sisyphus, but also Paganini and Chopin. There, Youzeck witnesses Walpurgis Night. He then escapes from Hell, swims across the river Styx and reaches Paradise. When Youzeck enters the gates of Paradise, they check his documents, because the Paradise police like things to be ship-shape: too many illegal immigrants are trying to get into Paradise. Youzeck sees God, who is so busy reading the Bible that He doesn’t pay attention to what is going on around Him; he also meets Adam and Eve. He then visits Purgatory, takes the animals to Noah’s ark, sees a UFO and experiences many other adventures...
