Synopsis

ENGLISH SYNOPSIS

The first man to conquer space, Yuri Gagarin was only 27 years old at the time of his incredible feat. However, a mere seven years later his life was tragically cut short. The cosmonaut lived his final years under the spotlight of fame. For Gagarin though, it was also a time of deep loneliness and longing. In spite of all the recognition and goodwill bestowed upon him wherever he went, nothing could replace the love of his devoted wife, left behind in Moscow while he travelled the world. Even the smiles of royalty appeared hollow compared to the smile of a friend – a friend now racked with resentment for not being the one selected to fly into space. Nevertheless, Gagarin had to smile constantly – a smile that was to become one of his most notable traits. A simple man at heart, he came to symbolise an exciting future – a future Gagarin himself was to play no part in.
