The 37-year-old actress, Yulia Pereslid, landed on the Kazakhstan steppe in the Soyuz MS 18 spacecraft along with the director of the film, Klim Shipenko. Pereslid was selected from a list of 3,000 applicants who were to blast off to the space. Before the release of the film, the Russian film has already Hollywood in filmmaking on space.

The filmmakers blasted off to the space in Russia-leased Baikonur Cosmodrome in ex-Soviet Kazakhstan along with the veteran cosmonaut, Anton Shkaplerov. The movie is based on the story of a surgeon who goes off to the ISS to save a cosmonaut.
