First in Flight is a character-driven historical biopic of the Wright Brothers, two impulsive, uneducated dreamers who finally solved the problem of heavier-than-air piloted flight. First in Flight chronicles not only the Wrights' scientific achievement but also the turbulent home life of these two wildly different young men, as they lived in the shadow of their conservative and domineering Bishop father. The script travels from the deep south the Wilbur's subsequent fame as a record breaking aerielist and bon vivant abroad in France. Everyone knows about Kitty Hawk. It's what happened after it that defined the legacy of the two American geniuses.
