WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

When you believe in yourself, the sky's the limit to what you can accomplish! It's the height of the Great Depression, but the construction of a new, modern building- The Empire State Building- is a symbol of hope for many New Yorkers, and captures 15-year-old Mickey's imagination. When his father must leave the city to look for work, Mickey hides in the building and is discovered by one of the water boys, really a Native American girl in disguise. He befriends a team of Mohawk ironworkers, and despite his fear of heights, accepts a job with the building's photographer Lewis Hine. Mickey's new friends teach him about their rich culture, and how to overcome his fears.
