The two friends, Peter and Kristian, share a boyhood dream of traveling into space in their own home-built space rocket. If they succeed, the two Danes will write themselves into the annals of history as the world's first amateurs to go into space. Peter and Kristian, who are the only people on the project full-time, have gathered a small group of spaceflight enthusiasts who contribute to the project alongside their regular jobs. The team has been working like this for five years, with the majority of their building materials bought in DIY stores. And now their rocket is nearly ready. But different opinions arise and collide, and suddenly the two friends wind up in a serious argument. They lose their tempers and before long they are in a space race, not against the world, but each other.
