In Pre-production

Set in a mythical 1920s Europe, a frail and dispirited elderly inventor, Valentino, has given up on his ultimate invention, a flying machine. When he is attacked by Death, in the form of an enormous, ghostly raven, Valentino, with the help of his mechanical hummingbird friend, Alida, overcomes his despair and completes his flying machine. Diving and banking through an alpine valley, Valentino and Alida find themselves in an epic aerial battle of life and death.
