In an English village, an enthusiastic crowd cheers an annual competition where their stuffed animals, attached to homemade parachutes, are thrown off the church tower to see how far they float. This documentary focuses on two local families, led by a dad and a granddad (one a former champion) as they vie for the top prize. But is the contest being taken a bit too seriously?
