Orville and Wilbur Wright were just two seemingly average brothers from the American city of Dayton, Ohio, without even a high school diploma. Both were content living as local businessmen, printing newspapers and building bicycles. Like so many others, the two creative and inventive brothers harboured a secret fantasy since childhood, a dream to be able to fly. In the late 1800's, the world's leading scientists were trying to construct a machine that could soar above the Earth. One by the one these brilliant scientists failed, some even falling to their deaths, victims of their own winged contraptions. So, how could Orville and Wilbur even think succeeding when no one else could? But succeed they did. This is the story of their life, the risks they tool, despite the multiple failures, and their unwillingness to accept defeat. This is the story of how the Wright Brothers find a way to change the world for the better.
