In Coalwood, West Virginia in 1957, all boys grow up to be coal miners. Homer Hickam (Jake Gyllenhaal) had no reason to think he'd be any different. Too small to earn a football scholarship, Homer had no way out of his predetermined life - until the Soviet satellite Sputnik flew overhead in the October sky and changed everything. Based on a true story.
