Set in 1920s rural Oklahoma, “Pearl” is based on the remarkable true story of Chickasaw aviatrix, Pearl Carter Scott – the youngest licensed pilot in American history. Mentored by world-renowned aviator Wiley Post, Pearl first pilots a plane at the age of 12 and becomes a commercial pilot and local celebrity before she reaches adulthood. As she finds love and becomes a wife and mother, her two greatest passions collide.

Viewers may also be interested in the Chickasaw Heritage project “Pearl Carter Scott: On Top of the World,” a documentary that shares the life story of the late Pearl Carter Scott, focusing on more than her flying career. The daughter of a successful businessman in Marlow, Oklahoma, Pearl was a dedicated and proud citizen of the Chickasaw Nation. She aspired, until her passing in 2005, to do "whatever is necessary to help my fellow Chickasaws."

The Vermont-based video service reaches Jericho, Richmond, Underhill and a corner of Essex, and has since 1997. It can be found on Comcast Channel 15 with on-demand content available online at Vimeo.com/MMCTV.
