Set in a remote coastal village, 10 year old Molly is struggling to deal with the loss of her father, the captain of a fishing boat which was lost at sea.  Molly spends her nights  hunched over her shortwave radio searching across the hissing frequencies for the sound of his voice. Until one night a voice emerges from the static hiss. Its the voice of a babbling Russian in distress – the voice of Victor, a Cosmonaut from the 1960s who is falling to earth…
