Perseverance is rewarded when two determined brothers launch the world into a new age of powered flight. Wilbur and Orville Wright observe how birds achieve flight by wing warping, and apply it to human flight. After years of trial and error, the Wright brothers manage sustained, controlled flight to the wonder of the world.
