Bonus Episode | A girl and an Astronaut (series)

Opening Shot: 2052. A shot of Earth from space. We pan back and see it’s through the window of a dark space capsule, a seemingly comatose astronaut inside.

Suddenly, screens and lights turn on in the capsule. The astronaut wakes up. On Earth, the people at SkyCOMM get a signal that their long-lost capsule, which they thought was destroyed in 2022 when a test of their new cloaking technology went awry, is on its way back to Earth.

Marta (Magdalena Cielecka) is woken up by her home’s AI system; it takes the initiative of showing her pictures of her lost love Nikoden (Jędrzej Hycnar), but she tells it to piss off. When she sees on the news that the SkyCOMM capsule that Niko was in has reemerged, she asks her husband Bogdan (Andrzej Chyra) why he lied to her about Niko being dead. “I loved him and you,” she tells him. “You lied to me.”

Flash back to 2022. Both Niko and Bogdan (Jakub Sasak) are young and brash fighter pilots. They’re among a group that was selected by the Polish government to train to be in the first space capsule launched by the Russian corporation SkyCOMM. As with most of this group of pilots, Niko and Bogdan are the alphaest of alpha males, though Bogdan is more buttoned up than Niko is.

After a stint in the UK, young Marta (Vanessa Alexander) crashes at the mansion owned by the family of her buddy Karola (Zofia Jastrzebska). The first morning she’s there, she meets Karola’s brother Niko, and they hit it off immediately. The two women go clubbing that night, where Marta meets Bogdan, a friend of Karola and Niko’s. She’s as intrigued by Bogdan as she is by Niko. Despite the fact that he doesn’t drink and seems a bit uptight, they get on the dance floor and he cuts loose.

The attraction between the two of them is undeniable, which sets off a competition between Niko and Bogdan to see which of them can impress Marta more. She stops them on a bridge, gets up on the railing and says “Who will jump in with me?”

Cut back to 2052. As the people at SkyCOMM, including Nadia (Daria Polunina), the granddaughter of one of the company’s bigwigs, try to figure out what happened, Niko lies in a coma, not having aged a day in 30 years.
