The Great Bird Race

The Great Bird Race

film-roll Denmark / Color / 90' / 2012

12-year-old Victor and his father attend the Annual Ornithology Competition, where Victor wants to prove his worth by spotting the rarest bird and win 1st prize – for his father’s sake. Victor’s plan seems realistic, since last year’s winner, Daniel, has a broken leg and is unable to attend. But Daniel shows up unexpectedly and now the match intensifies.
