In 1862 England, a wealthy young widow Amelia Wren (Jones, On The Basis of Sex, 2018) meets an ambitious scientist James Glaisher (Redmayne, The Theory of Everything, 2014, The Danish Girl, 2015). This chance encounter sets the wheels of change set in motion, as the two decide to mount a balloon expedition to fly higher than anyone in history.
