Farewell to the Moon
1972. The last man on the moon. A boys' first love affair.
Twenty years after the end of the sixties, Bob, a tennis instructor and father of two, finally comes face to face with all of that decade’s temptations when a free-minded resident moves into their block.
But how much ‘freedom’ can he handle? Meanwhile Duch, his 12-year-old son, indulges his own secret passions: space travel and a lonely Valium addicted woman next door. Triumph and defeat collide when, on the night NASA leaves the moon, Duch makes his first conquest.
