Life is not easy for Laika, a dog on the outskirts of a big Russian city. She is caught and forcibly retrained to become a pioneer in astronautics. Soon after her lift-off into space, a number of animals follow and are hurriedly launched from Houston and Baikonur. The animals arbitrarily drift around space, until with the help of a black hole, they are able to colonise a faraway planet. After a short period of harmonious, undisturbed co-existence with indigenous life forms, the first human cosmonaut runs ashore on their planet, and their harmonious life, indeed their very survival, are suddenly in jeopardy.
