Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis

Donnerstag mittag, irgendwo in Großbritannien. Arthur Dent wird von seinem Kumpel Ford Prefect mit der schier unglaublichen Nachricht überrascht, dass die Erde gleich in die Luft gesprengt werden soll, um Platz für eine Weltraum-Umgehungsstraße zu schaffen! Den Schock noch nicht verarbeitet, befindet Arthur sich bereits auf einem Weltraumtransporter, als die Erde vor seinen Augen mit einem lauten Knall verdampft. Eine ungewisse Reise durch das Universum beginnt für die beiden, in dessen Verlauf auch der Reiseführer Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis keine wirklich schlüssige Antwort auf die Frage bringt, was Mäuse, pangalaktische Donnergurgler, Poesiewürdigungsstühle, Sens-O-Tape-Recorder und die magische Zahl 42 mit der ganzen Sache zu tun haben...

Tratto dal famoso romanzo di Douglas Adams, narra di un viaggio avventuroso attraverso le galassie di un gruppo di alieni in cerca del "senso della vita".

Una mattina scopre che: la sua casa sta per essere abbattuta da un bulldozer, il suo miglior amico in realtà è un extraterrestre in missione sulla terra e il Pianeta Terra sta per essere distrutto. L'unica speranza che gli resta è fuggire via prima che sia troppo tardi.
