A character-driven film about passion and endeavour against the odds. Indian scientists with their feet in the slums of Mumbai and their heads in the stars. India‘s space programme is due to launch a satellite in November 2011 to photograph and study black holes. With unique access behind the scenes, Indian Spacemen follows the tensions and humour in the team as launch day approaches. This high-tech 21st Century world of space research sharply contrasts with their traditional family lives at home.
