The Last Man on the Moon

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

When Apollo astronaut Gene Cernan stepped off the moon in December 1972 he left his footprints and his daughter’s initials in the lunar dust. Only now, over forty years later, is he ready to share his epic but deeply personal story of fulfillment, love and loss.
Cernan’s burning ambition carried him from a quiet Chicago suburb to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space, and ultimately, to the moon. But there was a heavy price to be paid along the way. As Cernan's wife Barbara famously remarked, "If you think going to the moon is hard, try staying at home."
Using a wealth of rare archive, home movies, scrapbooks and intimate moments with his closest friends and family, Cernan brings spine-tingling experiences to the big screen more vividly than any moonwalker has done before.
