July 1937. 15-year-old Betty Klenck receives and transcribes the final transmissions of Amelia Earhart. Villainous company Last Words & Sons & Sons sets out to capitalize on Betty’s lucrative find. Inspired by 1930s radio, this ensemble comedy, based on a true story, asks audiences to consider: what will become of your last words?
