Long ago the father told his son about a wonderful mountain from which you can take off on a glider, thus realizing the eternal human dream of flying into the sky towards the wind and freedom. But the boy tries to find Koktbel on the map to no avail because the Koktebel that his father told him about is a miraculous dream about flight, freedom and unattainable happiness.
