Synopsis


An astronaut guides us through the international space station on his way to the communications room. He has a video meeting with his five-year-old daughter Annie, who is preparing for her first day of school. She is worried about this unknown experience so he tries to give her courage with an inspirational bedtime story. The story is a re-telling of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, told in a language reminiscent of children's storybooks. The film concludes with an image which Annie has drawn on her first day at school, depicting herself as an astronaut in response to the exercise "what do I want to be when I grow up".
