The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. A rescue mission is undertaken. The astronauts must find the dead space station and — for the first time in history — dock to 20 tons of uncontrollable metal. Even though the team realized that they have very little chance to return to Earth alive, this risky way is the only solution.The film is based on actual events. CTB actively explores new technologies and Salut-7 boasts a world record in the history of cinema as 40 minutes of the picture were filmed in zero gravity.
