Overland explores the complex bonds between three humans and the raptors they train and love. Lauren trains injured eagles to fly and hunt while scouring the world for falconry secrets. But a traumatized eagle which seems beyond repair pushes her to the brink. Giovanni left Rome for a solitary life in the countryside with his hawks. After a transcendent experience with an 800-year-old falconry book, he begins to question his life’s purpose. In Dubai, Khalifa is training to be the world’s best falcon racer. Now, with urban life encroaching, he must find a way to keep his fragile Bedouin culture from vanishing forever.
