Dramatic, moving & deeply human, this film is the definitive story of Neil Armstrong – the first man on the moon. From his childhood in rural Ohio, through aerial combat in Korea, to his first steps on the moon - and unwanted celebrity status that ensued. It is the story of a quiet, determined man who became an aviator, astronaut, husband, father and reluctant hero. Neil Armstrong’s words are narrated by Harrison Ford and the film weaves together breathtaking NASA footage, re-mastered archive material and never-before-seen home movies, to tell the incredible untold story of a driven family man who became a global icon. Directed by David Fairhead, the film also includes major interviews with his family, an exceptional cast of fellow astronauts and aviators, and those who knew him in his youth and later life, together with newly filmed sequences at some of the key locations from his life story.
