SYNOPSIS

The Space within us is coming of age drama, set in a rural, picturesque town Kostanjevica na Krki. The story revolves around 14 year old mulatto boy Toby, who comes from Canada on summer holidays with his mother Kristina, who is about to have an important art exhibition in her hometown. Toby is not excited at all to spend a summer away from his father and his friends. The situation gets even worse when the local gangs starts to bully him because of his skin color. The only positive thing about the gang is a free spirited girl named Tjasa, who leads Toby to an unusual encounter with a retired, blind astronomer Herman. Herman gradually decides to open the door of his abandoned observatory and through the telescope he shares his rich knowledge of Space with Toby. The star observatory also represents a shelter for Toby, where he runs to in order to escape the news about his parents’ marriage problems. As it turns out, even Kristina’s art exhibition was pre-planned and visiting her hometown was just an excuse to escape her marriage problems. The roller coaster of intense emotions and dynamic events lead Toby and Kristina to confront their fears and to discover what the Universe holds for them.
