Lois has only one dream: becoming an astronaut. Although she’s gifted in physics, she has a big problem. Lois weighs over 200 pounds – a family trait she’s inescapably stuck with. Just when everything seems lost, Lois meets Amélie, Stannah, and Justine: three teenagers shattered, like her, by life’s tough breaks; yet ready for anything in order to leave with her for outer space. Along the way, they fight, bond and discover they’re not so different after all. It’s a heart-warming story of friendship, acceptance, and the importance of loving yourself.

In partnership with the Embassy of France in Ireland.
