The film tells the magical story of an Australian boy’s passion for flight and his journey to compete in the world Paper Plane Championships flies. Eleven-year-old Dylan (Ed Oxenbould – Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day) is getting a hard time from a school bully, whilst his father (Sam Worthington – Avatar, Clash of the Titans) is at home grieving over the death of Dylan’s mother.
When a regional paper plane tournament is announced at Dylan’s primary school, he soon discovers his natural talent for creating the ultimate paper plane. During a whirlwind adventure that takes him all the way to Japan for the world championships, Dylan meets the junior Japanese champion, Kimi, and they develop a close bond challenging each other to build the most beautiful paper plane ever made.
Inspired by his carefree ex fighter-pilot grandfather and a kite hawk he feeds on his way to school, Dylan learns that if at first you don’t succeed, fly, fly again!
