In a convenient world where vending machines offer just about everything, the hero procures whatever he needs from machines on his journey to see the creator. He tries to make a replacement purchase of the earth. But the creator declines his request, saying simply that there is no such thing as a brand new earth. The simplicity of the story illustrates the depths of Tezuka Osamu's despair at earths degradation, forming the gist of this 4 minute work.

The film opens with what appears to be a lifeless wasteland, with an army vehicle ...

A play off the old saying, be careful with your wish. Aside from having a poor introduction it is made clear what is what. Shortly after the goal is made clear. Then when it comes to the conclusion the result is the result. But that line at the end had me laughing the most.

A good depiction given the plot.
