Spacebound brings us into an emotional rollerscoaster ride from the start. With a music track that is uplifting we follow our astronaut and dog through the desolate asteroids of space. Hoping from one crater to the next, he follows his dog through the trails that leads him into their last moments. According to the film's website the story is “not about the end, but about the journey one takes to get there.”
