When the Soviet satellite Sputnik flies over Coalwood, West Virginia, in 1957, a teenage boy’s dreams and destiny change forever in this true story of determination, inspiration, and triumph. With the help of his teacher and three buddies, he sets out to build a rocket. Despite his father’s disapproval, a limited education, and a series of misfires that threaten to flatten his dreams, the teenager overcomes seemingly impossible odds to fulfill his vision. Caution: Rated PG for language and a dash of teen drinking and sensuality.
