A short film about the benefits of moon travel for those on earth.

Arron Shiver's Irish entry Good Luck, Mr. Gorski (2011) launches an alternative
history where Neil Armstrong
taking his fateful step onto the moonturns to the
camera and cryptically comments, "Good luck, Mr. Gorski." An elderly couple
watching this on television ponders just what it could mean? Especially since
their last name is Gorski. The concept snowballs into absurdity and remains
hilarious throughout, punctuated by great comedic performances by its two
lead actors.
