Mission Ulja Funk

Space – an endless expanse with millions of stars and in the middle of it all is VR 24-17-20, a small asteroid heading towards Earth. This is neither dangerous nor unusual. What is strange is that VR 24-17-20 has been discovered by 12-year-old Ulja Funk.

When Ulja is prevented from pursuing her passion, astronomy, she takes matters into her own hands. With a stolen hearse and a 13-year-old classmate as a driver, she makes her way across Eastern Europe to watch the impact of an asteroid. In doing so, she has to shake off her critics, as well as her pragmatic view of friendship and family.
