What's "2001: A Space Odyssey" about?

So glad you asked! Have a look at the movie's summary, and a quote from the screenplay.

Stanley Kubrick’s dazzling, Academy Award®-winning achievement is a compelling drama of man vs. machine, a stunning meld of music and motion. Kubrick first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past. And then leaps millennia into colonized space, ultimately whisking astronaut Bowman into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality.

You know I have the greatest enthusiasm possible for the mission.
