How far will you travel to find happiness?

How about an inter-galactic trip with random strangers, to a planet of friendly aliens? Too much? Not for Celeste. A guide at the local planetarium in Havana, Cuba, Celeste has always been curious about life. Her predictable daily routine is boring and hopeless, devoid of love from family. But her compassionate, kind soul has made unlikely friends, one of whom is her weird next door Russian neighbor, who actually turns out to be an alien, who has now personally invited her to be a part of the expedition to take a trip to her planet. Needless to say, Celeste jumps at this opportunity, and thus begins an incredible journey, hilarious, exciting, everything that Celeste craved, and deserved. Melding humour and absurdity, with political commentary makes for a thoroughly delightful experience. - Shwetha VR
