Donne-moi des ailes (Spread your Wings)

Inspired by a true story, Spread Your Wings follows video game-addicted teenager

Thomas (Louis Vazquez) who is sent by his mother, Paola (Mélanie Doutey), to spend the school holidays with his father in the beautiful, yet secluded, wetlands of the Camargue region in southern France. With no wi-fi and only his ornithologist father, Christian (Jean-Paul Rouve), for company, Thomas is slowly drawn into his fathers passion for a gaggle of newborn wild geese. Together, father and son train the birds for their first migratory flight, hoping to free them from captivity. In doing so, they also start to rebuild their own strained relationship.
