Based on the previously unknown role women mathematicians played during World War II and set on the home front, Trajectory tells the dramatic story of Eleanor, a shy 17-year-old Jewish girl whose prodigious, yet concealed mathematical skills, are accidentally discovered. She is recruited by the US Army to serve in a covert math lab and entrusted with the ultimate challenge: to troubleshoot a top-secret weapon that will help America defeat its enemies and secure the world’s freedom. Swept from the basement of an Ivy League engineering school to the desert of California, to an Army Air Corps base at Pearl Harbor, and finally to the skies above the South Pacific, Eleanor is confronted with her innermost fears. Think Hidden Figures meets Code Name Verity — where one girl’s journey leads her to unlock the biggest mystery of all — herself.
