Héctor, a 10-year old boy, wants to be a volador - a member of his village's ancestral flying community - but his single mother can't afford the costs.
Héctor works the fields in his free time, refusing to give up on his dream of becoming a flyer. His effort gets the attention of a veteran volador, who decides to help Héctor in his quest.
This doc-narrative hybrid wants to bring awareness to the Totonaca people, their traditions, and their culture. The volador tradition is dying, so hopefully we can make even the slightest difference to help preserve the rich culture of this amazing community.
We also hope our story will help any child who wants to be a "flyer." You can make a difference: visit our website to learn how.
