Told in flashbacks from her last flight when she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean, this film serves as a biography on famous aviator Amelia Earhart (Hilary Swank) who, in 1937, became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She had gained fame earlier when she flew with pilot Bill Lutz (Joe Anderson) and Slim Gordon (Aaron Abrams) on a 20-hour flight from Newfoundland to Wales. The film shows how Amelia enjoys her celebrity status and how her marriage to George Putnam (Richard Gere) suffers because of her frequent flights and because of her love affair with Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor).
