Kansas-born girl, Amelia Earhart discovers the thrill of aviation at age 23. Within 12 years she goes on to win the Distinguished Flying Cross for being the first woman to pilot a plane solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Amelia and her husband/business partner George Putnam have an enduring marriage that could not be broken by her determination to fly, nor her passionate affair with Gene Vidal. At age 39, she sets out on an attempt to circumnavigate the globe, an adventure that catapults her into aviation myth.
