Adam is a man who is created by the Hand of God and is put on this lonely planet. He does silly acts and does all sorts of strange things. When God realizes that Adam is lonely, he makes Adam a friend. Adam, expecting it to be a woman, gets himself ready as if for a date only to find out his new friend is a penguin.
