The untold story of Gerard K. O'Neill.
Gerard K. O'Neill is a physicist and space colony pioneer. In 1977, O'Neill wrote The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space. This book sparked an enormous grassroots movement to "open the high frontier" to make space available and beneficial for all mankind.
The film is told through "Gerry's Kids", as they affectionately call themselves; his peers, family, and the younger generation who followed that movement and are now in charge of the modern-day space industry.
