Wally's Mission on Mars

Wally Nelson is a spry and unconventional 87-year-old on a mission to make NASA do its science homework. The retired rocket scientist has made his own movie to inform everyone of why NASA's plan to go to Mars is too dangerous and too expensive. Enter a woman who once dreamed of being an astronaut, but wound-up becoming a journalist instead.

The two make friends and come together in a patriotic mission to ask tough questions about NASA's goals. This may be the first feature film completed that documents the end of the Space Shuttle program. As NASA struggles to find its new identity, Wally is facing his own personal struggles. This is a film about science, free speech, and friendship late in life.
