Synopsis

The show concerns a Brit, James Smith, who crash lands his airplane in the magical land of Arcadia. In Arcadia, no-one tells lies, money is unheard of, and everyone is beautiful. The Arcadians even turn Jack into a strikingly handsome young man with curly blonde hair. After the Arcadians hear about life in London, they are horrified. They decide to dispatch Jack and two beautiful Arcadian nymphs to convert the miserable people of London to the Arcadian way of life. While they fail in their main mission, the Arcadians do manage to bring various lovers together and the show ends on a happy note.
