The Will To Fly is a feature documentary film about the empowering, inspirational story of Olympic champion Lydia Lassila, pursuing the ambitions of her tumultuous freestyle aerial skiing career.

Lydia ventures to uphold her Olympic crown as a mother, but more specifically, she seeks to write history by being the first woman to perform the most complex and dangerous maneuver of any acrobatic sport; a quadruple twisting, triple somersault on skis. Since missing her opportunity with gymnastics as a young girl, The Will To Fly showcases Lydia’s lifelong quest to fulfil her sporting aspirations.
