Blind Flight the film is both a prison drama and a love story in the fullest sense. It shows how the Irishman and the Englishman, from completely different and potentially antagonistic backgrounds, confront their own inner captivity as human beings. In the face of the most acute deprivation and under constant threat of death they forge a friendship that transcends all that appears to divide them. As they share their deepest memories and fears they discover a capacity for inner freedom, a joy for life and a compassionate humanity, which will embrace even their captors.
