When a retired engineer is called upon to rescue a failing satellite, he insists that his equally old teammates accompany him into space.
In the 1950’s, one of the first satellites was launched. Today, it is malfunctioning and threatening the Earth, and the original astronaut (Eastwood) is asked to go and do repairs. He wants three old air force buddies to go with him into space for the last time and fix it.
