Despite being four months pregnant, Mina flees her abusive husband and must accept a position as a maid in the home of a prominent astronomer.  When her employer famously declares that his maid can do better work than the men at the Harvard College Observatory, Mina rises to the challenge.  Based on a true story, "Capturing the Stars" shows how a poor immigrant can become a pioneer in the male dominated world of the 19th century, rising from the dust to the stars.
