Tyler Bastian met an incredible man, Agustin, five years ago. This encounter led to the decision to make a film about Agustin’s life with Trevor Hill and Tim Skousen.

In 2007, when they met Agustin in Honduras, producers and directors Tyler Bastian, Trevor Hill and Tim Skousen knew they wanted to make a film about him. Disabled by polio from birth and living in poverty has not deterred Agustin from his dream of one day taking flight.

For more than fifty years, he has been building a helicopter from wood, bicycle parts and metal scraps. His long journey to complete this complicated machine with no schooling  has many locals questioning his sanity and has made him a celebrity. But it is his spirit and determination to one day take to the skies that makes this short film incredible.
