"Pearl" tells the true story of Pearl Carter Scott, a Chickasaw girl, who is well known as the youngest licensed pilot in America. Befriended by the famous aviator Wiley Post in the late 1920s, the rambunctious and adventurous 12-year-old Pearl was taught to fly at the encouragement of her father. By the age of 14 she was performing as a barnstormer and trick flyer in carnivals and local events across Oklahoma, even hired as a private commercial pilot for business leaders and oil men before she was even legal to drive a car.
Sean Cain plays Lewis Scott ("Scottie"), a small-town farmer who won Pearl's heart during a whirlwind courtship. The two married and created a family together in Oklahoma. The film is directed by King Hollis and is financed by Media 13 Productions and Chickasaw Nation Multimedi.
