By Olivier PAIROUX. Co-written with Eusebio LARREA

Genre: Family adventure film

At only 11 years, Jim is a gifted boy passionate about space and science. Arriving in a new town with his dad, Jim has to participate in a young scientist competition with his new classmate Emma, a sensitive and discreet girl. Despite her reluctance, Jim convinces Emma to imitate Kittinger’s ‘Excelsior’ project (first man to reach the frontier of space in 1960) and to build secretly a real air balloon. This calling comes from his father, Graham, an astrophysicist who was meant to carry out a space mission very soon.

But when he discovers Graham has given up without telling him, his world falls apart. The competition turns into an obsession and Jim wants to prove unlike his father that he won’t give up.

In addition to the dangerousness of the project, the fierce competition between participants and his own obsessions, Jim lies to his father and decides to prove he was wrong to give up on his dreams. Jim can count on Emma : together, despite their opposite character, they take this challenge as crazy as exciting, which will gradually bring them closer …
