Lajko - Gypsy in Space

In 1957, the USSR offers Hungary the chance to choose the first person to fly to space. A pilot nicknamed Lajkó, who is obsessively hyped about stars, becomes the chosen one. But at the Baikonur base, it turns out it might not be a dream come true. This satirical film plays with the idea that the first living being sent from Earth to space was not a dog named Laika, but a Hungarian Romani.
