Susanna Nicchiarelli writes and directs this Italian coming-of-age tale about a 15-year-old Roman schoolgirl who dreams of becoming part of the space race. Set in the early 1960s, the film focuses on Luciana (Miriana Raschilla), who - along with her older brother Arturo (Pietro Del Giudice) - has passionately followed Russia's space missions since she was a little girl. A committed member of the local Italian Federation of Young Communists, Luciana frequently clashes with her right-wing stepfather, Armando (Sergio Rubini), while harbouring a hopeless crush on the Federation's handsome but chauvinistic leader, Leonardo (Angelo Orlando).
