Short synopsis

Elon is a hamster scientist who lives in a dump yard. He tries to fit in with the local rat community but nobody takes him seriously. The rats aren’t interested in his scientific experiments, which often fail in practice. 

One day Elon hears a crash. In his garden, he finds a crater with a damaged robot inside. How did it get here? Elon fixes the robot and finds out that he fell from a spaceship going to prepare Mars for colonisation, but the ship leaves in three days.

And that’s how Elon’s great adventure starts. Will he manage to get the robot back to his ship before it leaves with all the robot’s friends? 3-2-1 Liftoff! is an adventurous animated film about the courage and wits you need to have to get into space and back.
