In the annals of astronomy, Henrietta Leavitt is a pioneer. She worked with a group of women “computers” inside the Harvard Observatory at the turn of the 20th century. Along the way of making significant discoveries involving the stars along with her fellow workers, Henrietta must also come to terms with love, society and the place she has within her own family.
