THE WAY OF THE EAGLE is a powerful tale of hope and discovery, focusing on the lives of a troubled boy called Lukas (Manuel Camacho) and an abandoned eagle chick. Their worlds collide when Lukas finds the chick, which has been thrown out of the nest by his older brother. Lukas names him Abel and, together, they struggle to find a new beginning.
Delivering phenomenal wildlife footage, captured over four years in the mountain ranges of Austria and South Tyrol, by acclaimed wildlife directors Otmar Penker and Gerald Salmina, this extraordinary insight into the kingdom of the eagle is driven by the powerful story of Lukas. Escaping Keller, a cruel father from whom Lukas must keep his eagle a secret, the boy finds protection with Danzer, a man of the mountains whose own life is transformed by the boy’s arrival.
