In early March 2007, three Spanish parachute jumpers flew over Antarctica in wingsuits – a challenge that nobody had achieved before. The only previous attempt, by a US team, ended in tragedy.
The film follows the meticulous preparation of the flight: from the design of the wingsuits, to the moment of the jump –when the unpredictable weather conditions in Antarctica put the expedition on the verge of disaster. Beyond the adventure, this film captures a revealing story about one of the most primal human desires – to feel the exhilarating freedom of birdlike flying.
