After their mother Emma died, Jim’s daughters keep asking for stories. One of these stories is bestowed on us too: Science and especially outer space is Jim’s great passion inspired by his father, an astrophysicist. When he and his father move to a new town, Jim faces a problem: making friends is not exactly one of his strengths. That's when the school's science competition comes in handy. Jim is assigned to Emma, a delicate but curious girl. Although the two of them do not find common ground at first, Jim enthuses Emma with his crazy idea of building a hot air balloon and attempting a parachute jump on the edge of space, following the example of Kittinger’s “Excelsior” project. Like his father, who is soon to leave on a space mission, Jim wants to achieve something great, and for Emma it is a chance to prove that she is more than just a sick girl. When everything seems to fail, Emma realises: “Thanks to you, Jim, something has finally happened to me. I am free” – and they fly beyond all limits.
