Where her son flies in the sky

 On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin, "the Columbus of the Cosmos" became the first human to travel into space. During his flight, Gagarin famously whistled the tune "The Motherland Hears, The Motherland Knows" (Russian: "Родина слышит, Родина знает"). The first two lines of the song are: "The Motherland hears, the Motherland knows/Where her son flies in the sky". The Japanese Guerilla Paparazzi, themself known as maniac voyagers, are shown here while firing flashes of salute in honor of the travelling comrade. It should be noted that we don´t see Mr. Garin in Person, instead it is a "Singing Postcard" with a recording of the radio transmission covering his flight.
