The yoyo was invented in the Philippines. The film takes place in an imaginary village in Bavaria, “Yodelburg”, where one says “yo” as a sign of approval. The weather up on those mountains is ideal for a major enterprise: to create the first Philippine space project by building a spaceship. With surprising dialogue and great tenderness, the film is a sweet play that touches the heart of progress and capitalism’s aporias in a way that is not at all innocent.
