Synopsis

Neither straightfoward biopic nor fictional caricature, a retelling of the lives of Orville and Wilbur Wright, whose struggles to solve the problems of flight are not grounded in their usual historical context. The filmmakers experiment anachronistically by including such modern days devices as computers, and by casting a woman in the role of Orville Wright.
