Young Otto’s parents promised him a dog for his tenth birthday. But before they could fulfil their promise, there was a tragedy and Otto lost his parents. When he sees a shooting star the night before his tenth birthday, he once again makes a wish. But the star continues falling and crashes into the woods behind his grandmother’s house. In the forest, Otto discovers a spacecraft. When its hatch opens, a small dog comes out with Laika written on its collar. Knowing his grandmother is afraid of dogs, Otto decides to stay with the dog in the woods.
