Coalwood, West Virginia, 1957. Working in the coal mines is an inescapable way of life in this small town.

With the support of his teacher (Laura Dern) and three friends, Homer sets out on an inspiring quest to build his own rocket. Overcoming a poor education, a tough father (Chris Cooper) and a series of misfires, Homer turns his dreams into reality in this incredible true story of hope, determination and triumph. "You'll laugh with it, cry with it, and go away absolutely loving it," says Robert Butler (Knight Ridder News Service) of the critically acclaimed October Sky.

Středoškolák Homer Hickam žije v hornickém městečku ve východní Virginii, kde jedinou možností obživy je práce na šachtě. Homer má velkou fantazii a touží objevovat vzdálené světy. Jednoho dne zahlédne na obloze přelétat první sovětskou družici Sputnik. Začne se zajímat o rakety, a dokonce se díky tomu spřátelí s opovrhovaným "šprtem" Quentinem. Spolu se dvěma dalšími kamarády pak začnou amatérsky konstruovat malé rakety. První pokusy jsou však zoufalé. Aby získali více znalostí, pustí se do studia chemie, fyziky a matematiky. Nakonec se jim podaří sestrojit překvapivě funkční rakety. Ty nepředstavují jen jakousi lepší hračku, ale pokud uspějí na mezistátní soutěži mladých techniků, i únik z rodiště. V cestě za splněním snu Homerovi stojí nepochopení otce. Přesto se nevzdává a snaží se naplnit svoji vizi.

Deutsch
Coalwood, West Virginia, 1957: Das örtliche Kohlebergwerk ist der größte Arbeitsgeber, und fast jeder männliche Bewohner arbeitet dort, oder wird es einmal tun. John Hickam ist der Leiter der Grube, und er hofft, daß seine beiden Söhne Jim und Homer eines Tages in seine Fußstapfen treten. Als Jim ein Stipendium für’s College bekommt, liegt es an Homer, den Traum ihres Vaters zu verwirklichen. Doch Homer hat ganz andere Ambitionen: Sein Wunsch ist es, eine Rakete zu bauen, die genau wie die sowjetische Sputnik bis ins Weltall fliegen kann…

ελληνικά
Με βάση την αληθινή ιστορία του Homer Hickam, ενός γιου ανθρακωρύχου που εμπνεύστηκε από την πρώτη εκτόξευση του Σπούτνικ για να αρχίσει να παίζει με αυτοσχέδιους πυραύλους ενάντια στις επιθυμίες του πατέρα του, και τελικά να γίνει επιστήμονας της NASA.

Español
En 1957 en la pequeña ciudad minera de Coalwood, Homer Hickam sabe, como todos los chicos, que de mayores terminarán trabajando en las minas de carbón. Como no tiene el talento de su hermano para el fútbol americano, Homer intuye que no escapará de este estilo de vida. Pero el satélite soviético Sputnik atraviesa el cielo de octubre y todo cambiará. Homer decide fabricar un cohete junto con sus amigos y, a pesar de los fracasos iniciales logrará convencer a todos de que incluso en Coalwood se puede soñar con las estrellas.

A Coalwood, on est 'gueule noire' de père en fils car le charbon est l'unique ressource de cette petite bourgade de Virginie et la mine, sa seule raison d'être, sa fierté et, parfois, son enfer. En 1957, Homer Hickam, fils cadet du directeur de l'Olga Coal Company, a quelques raisons de s'inquiéter. Peu doué pour les maths et trop malingre pour prétendre à une bourse d'athlète, son avenir paraît tout tracé. Mais lorsque la Russie, battant de vitesse l'Amérique, met sur orbite son légendaire Spoutnik, Homer sent naître en lui une impérieuse vocation : participer à la conquête de l'espace, vivre pleinement LA grande aventure des temps modernes... Partant de zéro, l'adolescent réunit alors trois copains et s'essaie à la construction d'une première fusée... qui explose pitoyablement au sol. Bravant l'opposition paternelle, il n'en poursuit pas moins ses recherches, dévorant livre sur livre.

עִבְרִית
הסרט מבוסס על סיפורו האמיתי של הומר היקאם הבן שבשנת 1957, בעקבות שיגור הספוטניק הרוסי לחלל, מחליט לבנות טיל שמחקה את טיל מעבורות החלל. הסיבוך העיקרי בעלילה הוא שהעיירה קולווד, שבה חי היקאם, היא עיירת כורים שהוקמה בעקבות מכרה הפחם שנמצא בה, ורק בודדים יכולים לצאת ממנה. הדבר מרחיק בתחילה את הומר מהחלום שלו לעבוד במעבדות החלל של נאס"א ולפגוש את ד"ר ורנר פון בראון, אך היקאם אינו מתייאש ובונה יחד עם שלושת חבריו עשרות טילים כושלים, עד שלבסוף הם בונים את הטיל המושלם, שחומר הבערה שלו על בסיס כוהל.

Hrvatski
Pedesetih godina prošloga stoljeća u malom rudarskom gradiću Coalwood stanovnici su šokirani viješću o ruskom satelitu "Sputnik" koji leti iznad njih. Među ljudima koji svake noći sa zabrinutošću gledaju malu točku na nebu je i sedamnaestogodišnjak Homer Hickam Jr., čija je želja da jednog dana postane NASA-in naučnik koji će lansirati rakete u nebo. U nastojanju da sebi dokaže kako je u stanju to učiniti, Homer odlučuje zajedno sa svojim prijateljima, Royem i Shermanom, sagraditi i lansirati vlastitu minijaturnu raketu. Posto mu prirodne nauke ne idu baš najbolje, on u svoju grupu prihvaća Quentina Wilsona i četvorka, koju građani iz šale nazivaju "Raketaši", započinje niz eksperimenata.

Magyar
Homer Hickam az 1950-es években, egy kis nyugat-virginiai bányászvárosban tölti gyermekéveit. Kilátásai nem túl fényesek, valószínűleg ő is bányász lesz, akárcsak édesapja. 1957 októberében azonban megváltozik Homer számára a világ: fellövik az első szovjet Szputnyikot. Attól kezdve a rakéták érdeklik leginkább a fiút. Barátaival minden idejét a kísérleteknek szenteli, a szülői rosszallások ellenére. Egyedül Riley tanárnő bátorítja a komolyabb kísérleteket. Vezetésével beneveznek a Nemzeti Tudományos Díjért folyó versengésbe. Homer céltudatosan készül pályájára és az űrkutatás egyik meghatározó amerikai személyiségévé válik...

Italiano
Ottobre 1957, Coalwood, cittadina mineraria del West Virginia. Il cielo notturno è solcato dalla scia luminosa dello Sputnik, il primo satellite, lanciato dai Sovietici, in orbita attorno alla Terra. Per il diciassettenne Homer H. Hickam jr. è come una folgorazione: costruire razzi costituirà il passaporto per sfuggire al destino che lo vuole minatore, come tutti a Coalwood. Il ragazzo non si lascerà bloccare né dall'iniziale ostilità del padre, autoritario sovrintendente della miniera, né dai primi insuccessi; con l'aiuto di 3 coetanei e col sostegno della sua professoressa di Chimica e Fisica, parteciperà al concorso scientifico indetto per tutte le scuole della nazione; e vincerà il primo premio anche grazie al padre, che gli procurò i pezzi che gli erano stati rubati durante il concorso. Il suo ultimo razzo lo dedicò alla professoressa Riley, morta di morbo di Hodgkin.

Hidalgo summary, synopsis, reviews
HidalgoAction & Adventure2004

Based on the true story of the greatest long-distance horse race ever run, "Hidalgo" is an epic action-adventure and one man's journey of personal redemption. Held yearly for centuries, The Ocean of Fire -- a 3,000 mile survival race across the Arabian desert -- was a challenge restricted to the finest Arabian horses ever bred, the purest and noblest lines, owned by the greatest royal families. In 1890, a wealthy sheik invited an American and his horse to enter the race for the first time. Frank T. Hopkins (Viggo Mortensen) was a cowboy and dispatch rider for the us cavalry who had once been billed as the greatest rider the west had ever known. The sheik (Omar Sharif) would put this claim to the test, pitting the American cowboy and his mustang, Hidalgo, against the world's greatest Arabian horses and Bedouin riders- some of whom were determined to prevent the foreigner from finishing the race. For Frank, the ocean of fire becomes not only a matter of pride and honor, but a race for his very survival as he and his horse, Hidalgo, attempt the impossible.
