Lemuel Gulliver crashes his car and continues his journey on foot. His very first steps are accompanied by strange phenomena. Some evoke traumatic images of his own past. Suddenly he finds himself in the land of Balnibarbi, where time seems to have gone backwards. There are unintelligible rules that constantly expose him to mortal danger. He escapes a public hanging thanks to an invitation to the capital, Laputa, where he is carried high on the horizon. There he finds that no one has been running the country for a long time, and returns home only by a miracle... The film came over as a crushing allegory of the timelessness that followed the Soviet invasion.
