The documentary tells the story of the cosmonaut Sergei Krikalyov who spent 10 months on board MIR, while back on Earth, the Soviet Union collapsed.

When Sergei Krikalyov returns, the Soviet Union has disappeared and broken up. During his stay in space, so to speak outside the present, an era died out, another was born. Thus Krikalev became the first cosmonaut to carry out a mission for a country that had ceased to exist. The director Andrei Ujica relates, in parallel to Krikalev’s odyssey, the events that led to the Moscow putsch.
