MANGATA

By Maja Costa

AVAILABLE IN CANADA ONLY

Little Alya and her father are crossing the Mediterranean Sea on a boat that takes them from Africa to Europe in search of a safe place to call home. Tragically, the boat sinks. Thanks to Mångata— “the road to the moon” — the rescuers spot little Alya, the sole survivor. Many years later, we find her again as an astronaut on an important lunar mission.

In the middle of the mission, a technical communication problem isolates Alya from the base. This is when she has an encounter that teaches her how Mångata, which already saved her life once, will now help her overcome her past trauma.
