With the help of his teacher (Laura Dern) and three buddies, Homer sets out to build his own rocket. Despite his father's (Chris Cooper) disapproval, a limited education and a series of misfires that threaten to flatten his dreams and the town, Homer overcomes seemingly impossible odds to fulfill his vision in one of the most timeless, inspiring stories ever brought to the screen.
