Amidst the background of spectacular post-apocalyptic Ethiopian landscapes, emerges a strange-looking scrap collector, Gagano. Alternately gripped by daydreams and constant fears, the diminutive Gagano has had enough of collecting the priceless crumbs of decayed civilization, including the most valuable: merchandise from Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan. When a spaceship that has been hovering high in the sky for years starts showing signs of activity, Gagano has to overcome his fears--as well as a witch, Santa Claus and second-generation Nazis--to discover things aren't quite the way he thought.

Don't know what to make of this Ethiopian sci-fi but scored high marks from rottentomatoes:
TOMATOMETER 100%, 7/10 Reviews, and 6.1/10 in IMDb. It is a slow moving hour long film clearly made with "no budget" and relied on its simple theme that crumbs from the past would be the only remains in a post-apocalyptic future. Haunting clips of forbidden landscape of the sulfurous springs outside the abandoned Ethiopian town Dallol (known as the 'Hell-hole of creation', see Note below). 4 stars for a no-budget film but 2 star for the thin story.

(Note on Dallol per wikpediai: Dallol currently holds the official record for record high average temperature for an inhabited location on Earth, where an average annual temperature of 35°C (95°F) was recorded between the years 1960 and 1966. Dallol is also one of the most remote places on Earth, although paved roads to the village of Hamedela, which is close, are being built...)
