The collective life of the generation born as Jurij Gagarin became the first man in space. Vitalij Manskij has woven together a fictional biography – taken from over 5.000 hours of film material, and 20.000 still pictures made for home use. A moving document of the fictional, but nonetheless true life of the generation who grew up in this time of huge change and upheaval.
