Danny & The Rocket
In DANNY & THE ROCKET, an emotionally-isolated scientist connects with his heart. Danny Masucci has been building rockets for years; it’s the only thing that makes sense to him. Deeply private and insecure, Danny is shaken to his core when his beloved grandmother dies weeks before the biggest launch of his career. Reeling from the loss, he reaches out to colleagues for the first time, forming personal friendships and even beginning a romantic relationship. Yet as the pressures of intimacy increase, Danny discovers love has a steep learning curve.
