On Earth, Momo takes the appearance of a teenaged girl. To help the planet regain its hopes and dreams, Momo transforms into an adult form of herself, with an occupation tailored to fit the situation (Airline stewardess, police officer, football manager, veterinarian). Each time Momo succeeds in bringing happiness to the person affected, a jewel appears in the Fenarinarsa crown. Once 12 jewels appear, Fenarinarsa will return to Earth's surface.
