FULL DESCRIPTION

The AvTech Academy is the first and only aviation school for girls in Ghana. Not only do the girls learn how to operate planes, but also how to build them. On the surface, this flying school appears to be nothing less than a godsend for young ambitious girls, hungry for a future beyond the patriarchic structures of their society. But appearances are deceiving. The school is led by a white Englishman, who, although having the best intentions, puts his ideological stamp on the girls training. The film takes on a critical stance towards the so-called "charity-industrial complex" and, at the same time, respectfully approaches the hopes and fears of its protagonists.
