Synopsis

An acrophobic small-town Texas science journalist is assigned to cover the first Chinese manned moon mission and unwillingly ends up with the coveted observer spot on the moon-bound spacecraft. Overcoming both her fear of heights and the relentless efforts of agents from a U.S. cold-war agency – formed to protect the secrets still surrounding the American moon missions of the 1960s and 70s – she tackles the challenges of taikonaut training and spaceflight. Joining a crew of fearless Chinese, she embarks on an epic journey to uncover the remaining mysteries of our next-door celestial neighbor.
