At Harvard Observatory at the turn of the 20th century, Henrietta Leavitt joins a group of women tasked with charting the heavens, but she isn't even allowed to touch a telescope.
Despite restrictions placed on her and the other women, Henri devotes her life to the study of celestial bodies just out of reach while breaking barriers and forever changing the way that we measure the heavens.
