Youri is a resourceful teenager and a gifted engineer who lives in Cité Gagarine, an apartment complex named after his own namesake, the Russian astronaut Youri Gagarine. Although he has been abandoned by his mother, Youri is optimistic about the future and obsessed with science in all its forms, especially the concept of space travel. Spending his free time fixing all the broken technology and equipment in the building, which are all on their last legs, he is devastated to find out that Gagarine is set to be demolished and everybody who lives there must leave. Determined to make sure that the building will survive and his community will not be fractured, he enlists the help of his best friend Houssam and the gifted Diana, a local Roma girl on which he as a quiet crush, to defend the building until the end. This stylish French drama explores the meaning of community in the face of marginalisation and how our aspirations can be realised no matter how much the odds are stacked against us.

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
