SPACE DOGS embarks on a quest after the street dog Laika who was the first living being sent into space, where she burned out. A legend says that today her ghost is wandering through the Russian capital. The hybrid-documentary SPACE DOGS takes this myth as its starting point and proceeds by following Laika’s traces. They lead into the story of Soviet space travels and street dogs that live in today’s Moscow. This film is a magical journey across our earthly borders and tells a so far unknown story of Moscow stray dogs – from ascent into space to the life on the surface of the earth.
