Review by Louise Keller:
Raptors with broken wings and inmates with broken lives are the subject of Craig Monahan’s film about rehabilitation and letting go. It’s a unique drama in which bird and man face parallel challenges as they struggle with their fate and surroundings. But rather than concentrate on the strong central story involving an Iranian prisoner and his emotional journey as he connects to an injured but magnificent wedged tail eagle, Monahan (in his screenplay with Alison Nisselle) has tried to include too many subplots, which detract from the story’s heart.
