Following the extraordinary quests of three falconers, this is a cinematic journey across four continents that twists and turns like nature itself, bridging ancient and modern, east and west, and earth and sky. Lauren, a daredevil anthropologist, travels the world collecting ancient falconry secrets, building her skills to train injured eagles to fly and hunt again. When she encounters a confused eagle whose tragic past with humans seems beyond repair, she begins to question everything. Giovanni has given up the bustle of Rome for a solitary life with his wolves, horse, and hawks on a tiny countryside farm. A transcendent experience with an 800-year-old falconry book forces him to rethink his purpose — and the menace of the “digital cage.”. In Dubai, Khalifa is training to be the world’s best falcon racer. For thousands of years his nomadic ancestors hunted with the falcon to feed their tribe in the harsh Arabian desert. Now, Khalifa must find a way to keep the fragile culture of his Bedouin forefathers alive. As the movie unfolds in the wilds of the American midwest, Italy, the Holy See, Scotland, Mongolia, Azerbaijan, the United Arab Emirates, and South Africa, the epic journeys of Lauren, Giovanni, and Khalifa are interwoven into a stirring story that asks how we can stay connected to our natural, primal spirit even when modern society threatens to erase it.
