More About “I Need My Space”:
An ex-engineer on a sick leave has to endure Tarja’s, his hideous and tyrannous wife’s, daily despising comments. Esko has decided to run as far away as he can so he decides to build himself a spaceship and his only goal is to escape his dull life and horrible wife for good. A missing bolt forces Esko to visit a hardware store, and obviously, Tarja has to come along. In the store, a red vacuuming robot bumps into Esko’s feet from which he makes a fine companion for his trip. A week after, Esko has finished his project and it is time for departure. Esko fires the rocket, interrupting his wife’s and the neighbour’s intimate moment. Esko does not look back; his dream is finally coming true. Space’s euphoric peace and loneliness are finally real. Esko manages to get to space, but the peace will not last for long.
