In 1862, Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) is a budding young balloon pilot, but her gender holds her back from finding opportunities for the adventures she is both capable of and intensely desires. James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) is a pioneering meteorologist, fighting against the voices adamant that to predict the weather would be the equivalent of fortune telling. Searching for answers in the sky, the two set off in a hot air balloon - but far closer than their scientific findings, is the onslaught of bad weather on the horizon that looks to dampen their plans and darken their skyward adventure.
