Based on true events, this film celebrates the story of the African-American women: Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) who played a vital, yet underrated, role in the 1960s NASA space programme.
These women were instrumental in launching astronaut John Glen into space whilst fighting against racial and gender discrimination.
