    Celeste Garcia is a 60-year-old Cuban who lives in present-day Havana, where hopes of a brighter future have abandoned her. Her steady and predictable life as a guide at the local planetarium and mother of 25-year-old Pedrito is turned upside down when friendly aliens make contact with earth and invite citizens from all over the world to travel to their unknown but incredible planet. Celeste is one of the few to be invited and, to everyone's disbelief, she decides to embark on this extraordinary journey. But how many light years should you travel to find happiness?
