Storyline

Viktor Kahdem is a man who has almost given up on life, sentenced to a low-security prison farm, a completely non-threatening environment where it is still felt that some individuals can be reformed. At Won Wron, Case Worker 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 2 metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible. Written by Craig Monahan

Trivia

Actors Don Hany and Justine Clarke were also in a television drama series called Tangle a few years earlier. However, their characters had no direct involvement on camera in Tangle, unlike the regular contact their Healing characters had. See more »

Goofs

When Viktor is travelling into the city on the train, the internal shots show he is on a diesel powered V/Line train. However, as his train pulls into Southern Cross station, the external shots of the train show he is now on an electric "Metro" train. The internal shots continue to show him on a V/Line train, then the final external shot shows him stepping off the electric train and (even though in real life, it is plausible to switch between the two trains on that line). at no point in the story is there an explanation or logical reason to why he may have switched trains.

Emotional and thoughtful drama about a man and his soul trying to find a way
31 March 2018 | by the_oakSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. I never felt it was too long or boring. In fact, the movie gave me space to reflect and to do my own soul searching as I watched the main character trying to find a way, trying to find himself. Is he the hopeless man who ruined it for his family and brought shame on and abandoned his son? Or is he something more, something he can only find by being given a new chance by an understanding prison warden and by connecting with these birds of prey who also need help? More than anything I liked this movie for the glimps it gave into how humans can be good to each other even though it is difficult. There is a way if we are willing to try.
