Synopsis

A black comedy that allows us to learn that the first living being in space was not actually a dog called Lajka, but a Hungarian crop-sprayer by the name of Lajko. It is 1957 and the Soviet Union decides to give Hungary the honour of providing the first human to orbit in space. The most suitable candidate turns out to be none other than the quiet and placid Lajko, the first Gypsy pilot in Hungary, maybe the whole world. He has felt a lifelong attraction to the stars and the unexplored infinity of outer space. He cannot believe his good fortune. When he is eventually selected for this daring mission, he doesn’t know that they chose him for this mission for a reason…
