FILM GUIDE AVIATRIX

Anne is lonely. She lives with her mother, has no friends, and is fighting cancer. Her escape from reality exists in the form of The Aviatrix, an intergalactic superhero alter ego who rockets through space to fight the powers of evil on distant planets. Anne’s fantasy world is her only way of experiencing the adventure and romance that remain painfully absent from her life—until Miles shows up.
