In Soviet Russia the Altaic shepherding family Urmatov were heroes . For Boris and Marina, though, those days are just a memory. Unemployment is now rife in the entire region and worries are drowned with vodka. When debris from a Proton M rocket crash-lands on the mountain pasture, narrowly missing the cabin, Boris and Marina demand a large sum of compensation money from the Russian space agency Roscosmos.

A Q&A with the film directors will follow the screening.
