SYNOPSIS: As American astronauts prepare to make one giant leap, a quaint Australian town stumbles through its own small steps to help. Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill) leads his scientific team overseeing one of the world’s largest radio telescope dishes, nestled in a remote community of sheep farmers. NASA needs their dish as a backup for the television transmission from the moon. Buxton and his men are proud to help, though some of his team are wary about the strait-laced NASA technician brought in to oversee them. But when a change in the Apollo schedule means their dish will have to pick up the first historic broadcast, everyone must pull the together to overcome some unexpected obstacles.
