Film Story

SYNOPSIS

The feature film directorial debut of famed Cuban screenwriter Arturo Infante (Edad de peseta), follows retired teacher Celeste as she leaves her job at the Havana Planetarium to find a new, more fulfilling life among aliens. Suitable for all ages, this out-of-this-world comedic romp reminds us that happiness may be closer than we think.

If you had the chance to start a new life on an entirely new planet… would you? Celeste García, a 60-year-old former schoolteacher and current guide at the Havana Planetarium, is looking for a life change. When a group of aliens land in Cuba offering earthlings a chance to visit their planet, Celeste signs up for the journey hoping for a better and more fulfilling life. But how many light years will it take to find it?
