New Zealand's greatest historical aviation mystery is that of Richard Pearse and his early 1900's flying machine. There were many eyewitness accounts that say they saw Pearse flying his aircraft as early as 1903. 110 years on, Ivan Mudrovich, a retired automotive engineer, has embarked on an epic journey, following in the footsteps of Pearse to rebuild his aircraft and to fly it. This documentary was shot over a five year period, and follows Ivan and his family on their tireless quest to rebuild the Pearse aircraft in his backyard shed. Every human emotion is tested to the limit which makes for compelling viewing of that human spirit and determination of never giving up even against all the odds. The question remains, Will It Fly?
