This is an updated version of Jonathan Swift's classic symbolic social and political satire Gulliver's Travels. Gulliver wakes up in Balnibarbi after being involved in a car crash. Floating over Balnibarbi is the mysterious country Laputa, and Gulliver tries to go there when he hears it is a better place. After running over a rabbit dressed in human clothing, he takes the creature's watch and finds it runs backwards, whereupon a peasant comments that at least the watch runs.

How much time left before the festival starts?
