Air Born – Do You Dream of Flying?
After thousands of years, the ancient 18th of Ahmose are still on the hunt for the secret of flight, forcing Avitorians to hide in fear. Facing the threat of capture, Leif's dreams are shattered and he is forced to decide between hiding or embracing his heritage.

Humanity can hardly get along with themselves. How can we expect them to understand what we are and accept us as a part of their society if we’re different?”
