With no narration and using only archival footage—including news reports and interviews—this documentary seeks to upend much of the conventional mythology surrounding the race to the moon, placing the thrilling story in firmly in its Cold War context.

Among the historical figures included are astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Frank Borman, and Bill Anders; Sergei Khrushchev, son of the former Soviet premier and a leading Soviet rocket engineer; Poppy Northcutt, the 25-year-old "mathematics whiz" who gained worldwide attention as the first woman to serve in the all-male bastion of NASA’s Mission Control; and Ed Dwight, the Air Force pilot selected by the Kennedy administration to train as America’s first black astronaut.
