Storyline

Described by one critic as 'Ballykissangel meets Apollo 13', this short (26 minute) film is based on the extraordinary true story of a Donegal 'ham' radio enthusiast who made contact with a Soviet cosmonaut stranded on the MIR Space station during the summer of 1991. This radio friendship coincided with the growing political crisis in the Soviet Union. Mission Control in Moscow wasn't very forthcoming with information but his 'ham' radio friend in Donegal kept the cosmonaut abreast of developments. Written by Neal Boyle
