Inspired by a true story, HEALING is a powerful, moving tale of redemption, the discovery of hope and the mending of the spirit.
After 18 years in prison, Viktor Khadem (Don Hany) is a man who has almost given up on life. For his final months incarcerated, he is transferred to a low-security prison where Senior Officer Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men by assigning them as caretakers for injured eagles, falcons and owls.
Healing is a beautiful movie, not only for its cinematography, scenery and birds, but also to see a different side of the prison system: where there is hope instead of fear. All over the world, programs such as the one in Healing exist to help convicts get back on their feet and improve their chance of a successful re-entry into society. Healing tells the story we never hear of in the news or see in the movies.
Please join me, perhaps with tissues in hand, to laugh and cry with this beautiful and enchanting story.
