This heartwarming, inspirational and crowd-pleasing drama is the incredible untold story of three brilliant female African-American mathematicians working at a segregated division of NASA at Langley in Virginia. The visionary trio served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. As John Glenn became the first American astronaut to orbit Earth, the three women crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big. A well-made, uplifting and rousing piece of entertainment that celebrates some rather overlooked contributions from a pivotal moment in history.
