Whatever falls from heaven, you may keep.

When astronaut Julie Mahé crash-lands with her small space capsule onto the Kazakh steppes, local radio operator Iskander (nicknamed 'Gagarin') finds her unconscious. Hopelessly lovestruck, he convinces the amnesic Julie that they are engaged to be married. But even the most romantic lie cannot remain undiscovered forever.
