Synopsis

Based on an incredible true story, Spread Your Wings follows videogame-addicted teenager Thomas who is sent by his mother, Paola, to spend the school holidays with his father, Christian, in the beautiful, yet secluded, wetlands of the Camargue region in Southern France. Christian is a visionary scientist who studies migrating geese. For his teenage son Thomas, the idea of spending a summer holiday alone with his father on a farm in the middle of nowhere, is a nightmare. However, father and son begin to bond as they come together on a madcap plan - to save an endangered species of geese. With Christian’s pilot skills and an ultra-light aircraft, they begin preparations for an extraordinary and perilous journey - the pair plan to lead the geese they’ve raised onto new and safer migration routes, guiding them to Norway. Revolving around this familial dynamic, Spread Your Wings gently echoes the broader international rise of young activists debating the future of a planet they are about to inherit. Highlighting how even the smallest gestures can have a huge impact, it is a beautiful adventure film that the whole family will love.
