This is the story of the pioneers that brought raw, un-powered human flight out of the dream realm and made it possible for everyone. A documentary piloted by interviews with the innovators that brought wingsuit flying to the world. An adventure sport in which jumpers utilizing these wingsuits are capable of flying their bodies at horizontal speeds greater than 200 mph (ca. 322 km/h). Now, over twenty years since the first modern day wingsuit was created, we take a look back to see how one of the most captivating human pursuits came to be.
