The wish to unglue himself from the ground, to rise above it with only the strength oh his muscles, has been one of man’s oldest yearnings yet to come true. The story of the film is a result of the Mayor’s wish to have his Island enter aviation history, and the impotence of the chosen “flyer”, who in his blind passion for flying doesn’t even notice his wife’s affair with the mailman or the conspiracy of the village big shots, who are ready to sacrifice their neighbour for the dubious distinction of being written of as the first self powered aviator.

I will rise, glide through the air, or I’ll never walk the ground again.”
