    • Synopsis
    • An actress and a women's choir. One of the most famous women of the 20th century, about whom we know practically nothing, and a nameless collective symbolizing all the female cosmonauts groomed to be Valentina's backups, and forever overshadowed by her. A play and a concert. A documentary and a fiction.
      Tereshkova was a textile-worker whom Khrushchev picked to be the first woman in space. After getting back to Earth, she shone with a virtually divine light, becoming one of the Soviet Union's greatest and best-known celebrities. While athletes, scientists and artists all enjoyed their share of prestige, it was cosmonauts who were the true heroes and stars.
