Synopsis: The film is based on the true story of two elite U.S. Navy fighter pilots, Jesse Brown and Tom Hudner, during the Korean War. Set in an era fraught with racial disparity, Brown became the first black man in U.S. Naval history to become a fighter pilot, while Hudner decided to forgo Harvard to join the Navy. Despite their differences, an unbreakable bond was forged, and their heroic sacrifices would ultimately make them the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.
