Bobby Coote left school at 13 and says his reading and writing isn't great. He fixes clocks and spends a lot of time in his back shed making violins from old furniture. But he’s never lost sight of a lifelong dream to fly. His neighbour Sean has also caught the bug. Setting aside their own field of dreams they have cut out a runway and even built a hangar in a small rural border community. And now Bobby has used all his savings to buy a plane! He’ll get no encouragement from his brother Ernie. Ernie thinks the whole thing is mad but Bobby says he’ll make this happen … even if it’s the last thing he does.
