Thomas, who prefers video games to nature, is not thrilled by the prospect of spending three weeks' holiday in the Camargue with his father Christian. The teenager discovers that his father, an ornithologist with a passion for his work, has a project to save a species of dwarf goose that is on the verge of extinction. His goal is to guide the birds to a safer migration path by accompanying them in the air on his microlight. This crazy project brings Thomas and his father closer together, and the pair decide to travel to Norway to put the idea into practice. The adventures of scientist Christian Moulec inspired Nicolas Vanier to make this predictable but touching film with superb photography.
