Description: Dismissed from NASA's space program, former astronaut-in-training Charles Farmer pursues his lifelong dream by building his own rocket. On the eve of his launch, he must battle foreclosure on his ranch, a small-town community of disbelievers, the FAA and FBI agents who want to shut him down in the name of Homeland Security--but he remains determined to reach his goal and instill in his children the courage to pursue their own dreams, no matter the odds.
