Genre: Drama
by Kate Aspengren, directed by Karen Sommers

At the height of the Cold War, a woman fights for the right to fly for America in space. Based on the true account of the Mercury 13, the first US female astronaut-testing program in the early 1960s, FLYER tells the story of fictional pilot Fran Douglas. Through her relentless determination and vivid imagination, Fran reveals a rarely mentioned moment in NASA history in a highly theatrical and inventive way.
