Together with other young adults from different nations, Abtin, a young man from Iran is invited to Moscow to receive training as a visiting cosmonaut. They all travel to the space station Mir.
Looking down upon the earth, they understand the uniqueness of their planet, but also the threat posed by environmental pollution. They also realize that they can no longer make out any national boundaries- the world is one and undivided from up here. This experience arouses the desire for peace and international understanding in these young people. The author combines the message of her story with a well-researched portrayal of life on board of the space station Mir.
