Twelve-year-old Ulja is crazy about astronomy. When an obstacle prevents her from pursuing her passion, Ulja takes matters into her own hands. For a small price of a few homework assignments, she hires the driving skills of a thirteen-year-old classmate and the two embark on a trip to Eastern Europe in a stolen hearse. Their objective? To watch the impact of an asteroid. To succeed, Olja will have to shake off her persecutors, as well as her pragmatic take on friendship and family. The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival.
