ABEL – IL FIGLIO DEL VENTO

The stronger chick is destined to throw the weaker brother from the nest: this is what usually happens when two eagle chicks share the same nest. Man also has his ways, often to hurt those closest to him. Lukas suffers at the hands of a father who has withdrawn since the painful loss of his wife, killed whilst rescuing the infant Lukas from a fire. The boy now carries the burden of her death. Our eagle’s story begins in the nest. The first-born chick pushes his weaker brother to a certain death on the forest floor. But fate intervenes and the chick is found by Lukas. Naming him Abel, Lukas cares for the creature in secret, finding and offering him a love and companionship denied to him at home. But when the day comes to release Abel back into the wild, will Lukas find his own release into a new life?
