The movie is about the aborted attempt of USA to put man on the moon. The mission goes wrong as a tank burns up during takeoff and leaves them no option but to get the astronauts back to earth as they do not have sufficient power to land and come back.

The standby crew on ground emulate the scenario in the rocket and come up with solutions to overcome the shortages that the astronauts are facing.

It is a good exercise for the Project Managers to learn from on how unexpected things can go wrong and how one could, with a little foresight be prepared for contingencies.

A good watch.
