Sometimes we are close to each other. Sometimes we are far away. How do you make a hug from the distance?
Mariona, Yuri and Nil play space adventures. The universe is part of their game, just as we are all part of the universe. One day their orbits fork and they lose contact. And the years go by.
Now they are adults. Mariona is about to make the dream of their childhood come true: an actual space trip. She doesn't want to leave without saying goodbye. They want to say goodbye before she leaves.
Whether they meet or not, the memory wakes up, the games return and the stars make impossible constellations again.
ORBITAL revolves around a hug yet to be made. And about the long journey of three friends to make it real.
