The point of no return
United States of America, 2018
Duration: 95 min
Language: English, French
Subtitles: Russian

Two courageous Swiss pilots take a trip around the world on a fragile aircraft that runs on solar batteries. For the media and their sponsors, their travel sends a message about green energy, the fight against global warming and a greener future of our planet. But it turns out that the pilots have their own reasons. This movie is about a struggle of ambitions that are rooted in family and personal stories. The contradiction between the protagonists almost leads to tragedy. However, the main character here is not the human being but the aircraft. It has to cross two oceans while its skin is so fragile that it can be pierced with a finger. The wings are ready to fall apart even in mild turbulence. The batteries can deteriorate due to a little rain. Every day the plane slowly rises to the sun, and every night it descends to the ocean surface, depleting the batteries. Neither the pilots nor their engineers on Earth know whether there will be enough charge left to make it through the night.
