Synopsis

Inspiring drama based on the memoir by Mike Kersjes, a special education teacher who enrolled students with all manner of learning disabilities from autism to Down's syndrome into a space program originally conceived only for the most gifted young scientists. Played here by Sex and the City's John Corbett, Kersjes soon realised that to make his dream - and those of the students he championed - come true, they would have to face down bullying at both the institutional and personal level. Jessy Schramm of TV's Falling Skies co-stars as Kersjes' most loyal colleague Robynn while Moira Kelly is up to the challenge as his wife Darcy.
