Subject: For thousands of years, humans have dreamed of flying... to be like birds... riding and playing in the sky. Over the centuries many devices have been developed but one invention has allowed the freedom of the air to be explored lightly, simply yet with elegance and power. This is the world of the paraglider. A paraglider relies on nothing but the Mother Nature's power to fly. Pilots manipulate the profile of their wing to climb, glide, travel great distances and perform acrobatic manoeuvres. Like any sport, paragliding has its legends, its pioneers and its dreamers. In the country of Venezuela, two friends are about to embark on a journey into the heart of the paragliding world.
