Amélie Poulain was raised by eccentric parents who — erroneously believing that she had a heart defect — prevented her from meeting other children. She was home schooled by her mother. She developed an active imagination and fantasy life to cope with her loneliness. After her mother is killed in a freak accident, her father's withdrawal from society worsens. Amélie eventually decides to leave home and becomes a waitress at Café des 2 Moulins in Montmartre, which is staffed and frequented by a collection of eccentrics. Spurning romantic relationships after a few disappointing efforts, she finds contentment in simple pleasures and letting her imagination roam free.

On the Green Beautiful, a utopian planet much smaller than Earth, Mila, a rather young woman - by the reckoning of her people, at any rate - volunteers to go on planet Earth at the yearly planet reunion. It has been two hundred years since they had last sent Osam (an old sage) and Mila's father there, and they had come back with what they believed were nasty tidings: the people of Earth lived in a generally bad condition. Osam mentions Napoleon and stresses the fact that at that point in the development on earth, there was still money - a notion that baffles even the wisest folk of the Green Beautiful. Apparently, it seems that without money, you have nothing. In time, we find out that important historical figures such as Jesus and Johann Sebastian Bach had come from this very planet.
