Teenager Youri has lived his whole life in the tight-knit community of Gagarine, even being named after the famed Russian cosmonaut who inaugurated it in 1963. From the heights of his apartment, the science wiz dreams of becoming an astronaut.

But when plans to demolish his home are leaked, Youri joins the resistance, embarking on a mission to save Gagarine, resolved to keep both the building and its community alive. Working tirelessly with best friend Houssam and Diana, a mechanically-minded Roma girl he has a crush on, Youri ingeniously transforms the housing project into his own "starship" before it disappears into space forever.
