After being introduced in a press conference, the Mercury Seven tour America to promote the NASA space program and gain funding from Congress. Glenn charms journalists and audiences alike, but the other astronauts and their families struggle under the public attention.

The Seven sign a deal with Life Magazine, which gains exclusive rights to their life stories in exchange for a hefty payment.
