A Time to Fly

Synopsis

Inspired by a true story of young Mong Thongdee, a boy hailing from the rural mountains of northern Thailand, unexpectedly wins a local paper plane tournament. Now a member of Thailand’s national team, he has the opportunity of a lifetime to travel to Japan and take part in an international paper plane competition. But he faces one major obstacle: he is stateless. Bearing no citizenship to his name, leaving the country becomes one of Mong’s mere fantasies. Alongside with his teachers, lawyers, journalists as well as the Thai public calls for its birthright laws to make his dreams a reality…before it’s too late.
