Story: A young boy from Australia named Dylan (Ed Oxenbould) has a passion for flight and ends up competing in the World Paper Plane Championships in Japan. He faces distraction and hostility from a school bully, as well as his father (Sam Worthington), still grieving over the death of his mother in a car accident, and his chief rival, the spoiled win-at-all-costs Jason (Nicholas Bakopoulos-Cooke), the son of a respected golfer (David Wenham). He is inspired by his devil-may-care former World War II RAAF fighter-pilot grandfather (Terry Norris), a kite-hawk he feeds on his way to school and later a Japanese paper plane champion Kimi (Ena Imai).
