Astronauts

Astronauts

Vienna, 2001. Carla, a bulimic woman in her late twenties became pregnant unintentionally and lives as a single mother under very precarious circumstances. She struggles to have the strength to take responsibility – financially and psychologically – for the baby. While searching for the child’s father, Carla meets in her former favorite karaoke bar a non-binary person from Argentina who is dressed as an ASTRONAUT. The two social outcasts establish a closeness in a short time that some people cannot achieve in years in a confined space. The encounter with the Astronaut gives Carla a new perspective on her reality and the courage to make the most important decision of her life.

Directed by Mariano Cabaco (Austria)
