You will be instantly enchanted by this quirky and delightful tale about the power of dreaming and the triumph of the underdog. Nine-year-old Christmas Flint (played with panache by Mckenna Grace) is a girl who revels in her nerdy love for all things space and alien related. When she discovers the prize for the 1977 Birdie Jamboree is getting to be a part of a voice recording that will be sent to space as part of NASA's Golden Record initiative, she sets her sights on winning that intergalactic immortality. The problem is there’s no way the Birdie leader at her school, Miss Massey (Oscar-winner Allison Janney), would let her join the annoyingly perfect troop.
