This show replaces the Toku show originally scheduled. 

In the midst of the Cold War and the space race, Laika is a dog surviving on the streets of a frozen city. She has no idea that her destiny will take her into space aboard the Sputnik II shuttle. Although it was an exciting adventure, Laika’s story didn’t have such a happy ending… Xirriquiteula Teatre is taking advantage of Laika’s adventures to tell the parallel story of those who find themselves victims of abuse and unwittingly caught up in the power struggles of others.
