Taking Flight is a short film inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the Radio Flyer wagon.
In this fictional tribute to Pasin’s legacy, what begins as a small boy’s over-scheduled, over supervised, boring day with Grandpa turns into a larger-than-life journey, narrowly escaping wild monkeys and battling aliens to save the universe.
Through the power of imagination and epic adventure, a boylearns to be a kid, a father learns to be a dad, and a grandfather reminds us all what childhood is about.
