    • Synopsis
    • Inspired on true events, The Last Flight follows the story in the life of a civil pilot from a town located in the rural area of a Latin American country in the seventies, during military dictatorship, through the memories of his son.
      The pilot is widely known due to his participation at local aeronautic festivals but especially because of his sanitary flights, a mission he fulfils as his vocation.
      These flights aimed to rescue those men, women and children from remote rural areas whom due to the merciless weather, rains and floods become completely isolated on their lands. Facing frail situations, their life or death rested on the hands of the pilot and his skill to get to those unreachable places under the most arduous conditions. Then in a race against time to take them to a medical
      centre where they could be properly taken care of.
      However, his heroic deeds will suddenly be in jeopardy when his path finds himself face to face with the military authority that pretends to employ
      the landing field for the sport activities of their officers. This presence puts his humanitarian efforts under risk while it threatens to destroy from the ground his freedom roaming the skies.
