First In Flight

 

Year: 2012
Country: USA
Run Time: 29 minutes

TWO BICYCLE MECHANICS from Dayton Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright, dared to believe they could fly. Their dream was so big it launched them into the skies. Now, these brothers are about to face their most difficult day: May 30th, 1912. Orville spends his final moments by his brother's deathbed, reflecting on their lives- the joys and pains, friendships and betrayals, successful flights and fateful crashes. Though they have taught the world to fly, they have made enormous sacrifices along the way. With years of partnering about to end, they are haunted by the question, 'Was it worth it?'
