From the same studio that produced Richard Viktorov's diptych Moscow-Cassiopeia / Adolescents in the Universe comes this second teen-themed sci-fi adventure, in which three youngsters (one of them played by Mila Berlinskaya, who sings the film's theme song and went on to become a world-famous classical pianist) have to take command of a space flight when their adult captain comes down sick and is forced to quarantine himself.
