‘Hidden Figures’ is the inspiring true story of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson and Katherine Johnson, three African-American women who played a pivotal role in the birth of NASA’s space program in the 1960s.
NASA are putting a man on top of a missile and shooting it into space: they’ve never done it before and it’s incredibly dangerous. They need the best mathematicians and engineers they can find, which gives these three women a long-overdue chance to prove their value.
