Synopsis: After the loss of her mother, a little girl arrives at an orphanage. Outside, the greatest discovery awaits her.

Director Statement: What started as a simple idea, led to my most ambitious project: more than a year of writing, exhaustive documentation about NASA, simulation of zero gravity in built-up sets, shooting with children and animals in natural settings of far countries, and a complex postproduction.
