Set in the era of the great space race in Russia, the story is narrated by a boy who dreams of being an astronaut. Omon successfully enrols in an air force academy where he is trained for space exploration. What ultimately comes across is how the Soviets exploited the dreams of young men in order to present “heroes” to the rest of the world. Political, edgy and dark.
