Healing (2014)

Available worldwide

After 18 years in prison, Viktor Khadem is a man who has almost given up on life. For his final 12 months, he is sentenced to Won Wron, a low-security prison 125 miles outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, where Senior Officer Matt Perry has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors – beautiful, fearsome proud eagles, falcons and owls.

Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle with a six-foot wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible.

Inspired by true events, Healing is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit.

I will never forget this move. The relationship between the raptors and man. The relationship between men. One of my top ten movies ever. Thank you.

I loved this movie so much, and especially the music. I bought the soundtrack within minutes of watching it in February, 2016. I doubt that there are more than 10 days in the last six months that I haven't listened to parts of it. It moves me to no end. Thanks for for such great programming.

This is a heartwarming movie. The close up bird footage is amazing. All of the actors were good, especially the lead prisoner.

This prison almost seems like a resort with food and laundry service. Even the guards were nice.

Besides the story line and filming being magnificent, the music moved us emotionally through it all... I bought the entire soundtrack within minutes of watching. I was truly moved by this film in so many ways.
