    Brief synopsis

    Zosia has a strong personality, Oskar is vulnerable and Kinga is independent but shy – these first-graders are entering a boarding school for blind and visually impaired children.
    Zosia has a strong personality and is full of fantasy, Oskar is insecure and vulnerable, while Kinga is independent but shy – these first-graders are entering a boarding school for blind and visually impaired children. They are like fledglings – too young to leave their family home. In such difficult moments like separation from their parents, and then isolation related to the pandemic, they try to help each other… This film is about the life lesson of “flying”.
