In rural 1977 Georgia, a misfit girl named Christmas Flint (Mckenna Grace) dreams of life in outer space. When a national competition offers her a chance at her dream, to be recorded on NASA’s Golden Record, she recruits a makeshift troop of Birdie Scouts, forging friendships that last a lifetime and beyond. Written by Beasts of the Southern Wild co-writer Lucy Alibar and helmed by directing duo Bert & Bertie, Troop Zero was shot in Louisiana and stars Viola Davis, Allison Janney, Jim Gaffigan, and Mike Epps.
