Overview


Synopsis

A free structured look at the 1986 Challenger disaster places the teacher who dies with six others as they are hurtled into space at the center of an exploration of our need to reach beyond ourselves and dare the universe. Past and present lives weave together, drawing parallels among painter Claude Monet's artistic quest and the perspectives, aspirations, guilt and fear of other characters that stimulate our fascination with space.
