Description: The story of a boy, Elias, who makes a pact with his father to watch the moonlanding on television. The year is 1969. The pair loves to recite the stories of Jules Verne, the man who had envisioned the "shot to the moon" a century earlier. Elias and his dad are adventurers and explorers. They spin tales of the imagination that take them far away from their home in Athens -- to their imagined refuges on islands and in space. They name the blue family car "Birbilo" and turn it into their own spaceship. Elias worships his father. But his father is often away on business trips, and one day, he doesn't come back. The nighttime promise will go unkept. And Elias must rely on their shared love of storytelling and the imagination to transcend the unimaginable.
