The plot of the performance is based on a real fact of miraculous healing of a 12-year-old boy of cancer after a call from a spaceship. Patient Sasha Gavrilov was in one of the final stages of the disease.
The child dreamt of space. His doctor was a friend of the Russian astronaut Yuriy Lonchakov, and it just at that time the spaceflight took place. The doctor asked the astronaut to call the boy from space to support him. Yuri Lonchakov encouraged the boy in every possible way, sent him photographs from space. And that communication became miraculous for the child and afterwards the medical condition of the patient gradually improved. As a result, the child recovered completely. Dream and courage defeated the disease.
The author of the play, the Head of the ART Theatre, Doctor of Arts Angelina Rosca says: “Doctor Oleg Tatkov, who introduced the boy to the astronaut, offered me this documentary material. The play includes interviews with heroes, medical reports, media materials, letters, etc.
