The lives of test pilots completing their work on a dangerous project are followed as a new style of ejector seat is tested for the B-47 bomber. Major Paul Peterson is assigned to the project that will see him ejected downwards from the bomber at 43,000 feet. The first pilot to attempt the test is seriously injured and prompts Paul and his wife to begin to have doubts about the project. Paul must come to terms with the issues he has over his own safety and the life he shares with his wife and son as he embarks on the tests.
