It won an AFI Award and a Young Actors Award, both for the performance of actor Zbych Tro-fimiuk.

Characters similar to Nikki and Maggie are also in the movie, but they are named Ali and Fiona. The actors are not the same as in the Sky Trackers TV-series.

The Story

The Masters and Colbert families live near a space tracking station, since Tony Masters and Marie Colbert are both astronomers, working at the station. Tony Masters' son, Mike, isn't into science at all, he loves Jimi Hendrix and his relationship with Tony is not good. On the other hand, Marie Colbert's oldest daughter, Nikki, is completely into science. Although there are a lot of differences between Nikki and Mike, they develop a special relationship. The series is partially about the science, but most of it is about relationships and other important things in life.
