A young aviation enthusiast’s obsession with the majestic Concorde is the basis for this poetic exploration of family, culture, and love, propelled by entrancing readings from Khalil Gibran’s The Prophet.
Every Sunday, a Pakistani family watches planes
land at the Montreal airport. This week, the famous
Concorde is scheduled to make an appearance. For
seventeen-year-old Akram it's time to take flight: he
dreams of taking the Concorde to Paris. Propelled
by Akram's father's reading of Khalil Gibran's The
Prophet, Nous avions explores family, cultural expectations,
and unconditional love.
