    • A human story, narrated in the first person by its protagonist, Commander Michael López-Alegría, about the difficulties a father faces in maintaining family ties with his seven year-old son during Expedition 14, a period of seven months and at a distance of 400 kilometres from the Earth.
      Son and Moon’ approaches the space world from an unusual point of view, combining spectacular images with others, private conversations between father and son via a simple webcam. The figure of space heroes bring them closer to us terrestrial beings by having them share the same difficulties.
      When we are celebrating 40 years since man walked on the moon, this film raises an original idea which struggles between compromise and the survival of the species.
