Héctor, a 10-year old boy, wants to be a volador – a member of his village’s ancestral flying community – but his single mother can’t afford the costs. Héctor works the fields in his free time, refusing to give up on his dream of becoming a flyer. His effort gets the attention of a veteran volador, who decides to help Héctor in his quest. This doc-narrative hybrid wants to allow the audience to enjoy the beauty of the ritual and the amazing culture that surrounds it.
