Meet Valentin: eight years old, mop-topped, with a wealth of wisdom just waiting to burst out from behind bottle-top spectacles. Hes also Argentinas greatest hope for space exploration. Though only within the boundaries of his NASA-obsessed mind and his rather chaotic real life in 1969 Buenos Aries.
Living with his grandmother (Carmen Maura) while his divorced father philanders in the city, hes grown weary of being motherless and craves the attention that the right beautiful lady could bring him
and his father. And there lies his conundrum. So he hatches a plan to bring a little life and true love into his fathers life, his family and those of his eccentric neighbours.
