The Blind Flyers
Filmfest 2004

Maria and Inga are thirteen and best friends. Like all girls their age they have the usual problems: boys, teachers, their figures... There’s just one thing that makes them different. They’re blind. The two girls go to a boarding school where they pursue their one great passion - music. When they hear that a band from the local public school is looking for more members to take part in a TV talent contest, they know it’s their big chance. Their hopes are soon dashed, however, when they’re turned down ‘because blind kids just aren’t media cool’. So they start their own band - The Blindgänger...
