The film uses original NASA film, images, and audio to tell the story of astronauts Eugene A. Cernan, Harrison H. Schmitt, and Ronald E. Evans and their record-setting journey.

On December 7, 1972, NASA launched Apollo 17, a lunar mission crewed by Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt. It would be the last time humans traveled beyond low Earth orbit, the last time man landed on another celestial body, and the last time man went to the moon. The Last Steps uses rare, heart-pounding footage and audio to retrace the record-setting mission.
