A stray Moscow dog became a cosmonaut. She returned to the streets as a ghost.

Space Dogs is a film that transcends genres. The friendship of two dogs on the streets of Moscow today is interwoven with unseen archival footage of Soviet space research. We realize the sacrifices Laika and her companions made on the altar of science and progress. But the film goes further, as it mixes past with present, the universe with the earth, and life with death.
