The director Vladimir Kozlov went to visit the home town of Cosmonaut, Youri Gagarin. There he met with several moving and funny characters, such as Tchekusov, the “official” poet, Fédotov, the bard of Gagarine, Tamara, the niece of the cosmonaut, as well as his friend, Alexeï Leonov. All of them sustain the memory of the little guy with the smile so typically Russian, who was the first to journey up to the stars.
