Young, imaginative Lana excitedly approaches her parents about traveling to the moon. Her parents say the moon is far away and that it’s lonely. Her brothers, Jay and Ray, aren't encouraging either. They say she’ll float away because there’s no gravity. Lana builds a rocket out of boxes and secures her space suit. Her room becomes a launch pad and, soon enough, she’s on the moon! In her imagination, the moon isn’t lonely. In fact, her family comes with her. They help keep her from floating away due to the lack of gravity. Lana gets hungry and decides to head home, just in time to make moon-shaped cookies with her beloved family.
