The Cité Gagarine housing complex in the southern suburbs of Paris, after being a symbol of progress and modernity for years, is about to be demolished due to decay. Among all the residents who are ready to say goodbye to a significant place, only 16-year-old Youri does not want to resign himself to moving. As the neighborhood empties, the boy puts his engineering talent and cosmic imagination at the service of a dream.
