Maggie is a renowned space scientist who has been obsessed with asking questions since she was a little girl. Now a 60-year old woman with a career in looking for exoplanets behind her, she begins to think about her relationship with her father who she hasn’t spoken to in 30 years. After launching her biggest mission yet, maggie slips into a depression. In the midst of this, she finds herself revisiting her memory of the apollo 11 launch, and realises that her estranged dad might be more responsible for her life choices than she previously thought. Lights! Planets! People! Is about the importance of asking the biggest, boldest questions – even when the answers might terrify you.
