The events take place in London in the fall of 1862. Meteorologist James Glacier suggests that the weather can be predicted and begins to explore this theory. He has not always been able to make accurate predictions, which is why other scientists make fun of Glacier’s work and call him the “weather handler.” To prove that his theory is true, James is going to rise in a balloon and make some measurements at height. But to do this, he needs an aerostat pilot, so he seeks the help of Amelia Rehn, an experienced aeronautical engine that stopped flying after her husband died. The picture begins with the launch of the balloon on September 5, 1862, but then interspersed with events that preceded the flight.
