After encountering some questionable characters, she meets Yergey, a Russian cosmonaut who has been manning an orbital telescope up in space alone. And he wants to see her boobs.

Cool side note: The second creeper she meets is actually the short film's writer Oli Fenton.

Director Ben Aston tells BuzzFeed via email that the short film was inspired by this video of Chris Hadfield, a now-retired Canadian astronaut, showing how tears can't fall in space.

The entire set cost a whopping £50 ($83 USD) to make, and there's an entire behind-the-scenes video for how the film came together.

Another cool side note: the actors who play Yergey and Lucy never actually met in person during the filming either. Their parts were filmed two weeks apart.
