The crane is an incredible bird. Monogamous by nature, they spend their life with the same couple. In winter huge crane flocks living in Russia migrate and travel long distances to reach Africa in a dangerous trip. Igor knows this because his father is an ornithologist that devotes his life to monitoring cranes, even if that has cost him his marriage. Igor knows because, even though he has had to move with his mother to Israel to start a new life, he monitors the cranes’ trip on the Internet. But if he wants to see his father again he will have to do much more: create a home for the cranes in Israel. Adaptation of the novel by Aki Shavit and shot between Poland and Israel, the film had its world premiere in the section for children in the last edition of Toronto International Film Festival.
