A coming-of-age story set in the suburbs of Houston, Texas in the summer of 1969, against the backdrop of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing. The story will be told from two interwoven perspectives, capturing the astronaut and mission control view of the triumphant moment, alongside the lesser-seen, bottom-up perspective of what it was like from an excited kid's perspective, living near NASA but mostly watching it on TV like hundreds of millions of others.
