What does food in tubes, aged cosmonauts and a group of amateur Estonian women artists have in common? We find out in this delightful documentary set in the tiny town of Põltsamaa the home to the factory that produced the foodfilled tubes used by Soviet cosmonauts and which were part of the local Estonian diet for decades. A group of women artists create fanciful work celebrating the 50th anniversary of Põltsamaa food tubes, and invite two former cosmonauts to their opening.
Põltsamaal asub tuubitoidu häll, kus toodeti 60-70ndatel salaja kosmonautidele toitu. Kuigi Põltsamaalt ei lenda juba ammu ükski tuub kosmosesse pole vanu aegu unustatud. Samal ajal kui Moskvas tähistatakse 50. aasta möödumist esimese inimese lennust kosmosesse, pidutsevad Põltsamaal tuubimeistrid ja neile nostalgia laineharjal külla sõitnud kosmonaudid. Esimest korda saavad nad vabalt meenutada kunagi saladuslooriga kaetud noorpõlve sündmusi.
