Free Flight Over Rio

Diego descends with a small group of other children from a favela in Rio onto a nearby field where Mari Monteiro, a young hang gliding pilot, lands her glider most Friday afternoons. On this Friday, Mari discovers that Diego is being run as a money mule by Falcão, the "falcon," the local favela kingpin. Anxious to free Diego and other orphans from their desperate plight, Mari searches for the means--and the courage--to rescue the children, but finds herself ill prepared to tangle with the calculating Falcão.  

Set against backdrop of Rio's sweeping scenery, Free Flight Over Rio  weaves together stirring themes of the human condition and the force for good of a single courageous life.
