A Cow in the Sky


C. Fraser Press, Darren Press

On his first solo flight as a pilot, a young immigrant finds himself wrestling with his identity when his engine fails and his plane free falls. Based on the true story of Mulugeta Seraw, an Ethiopian college student killed in Portland, OR in 1988 by Skinheads, this beautiful animated film is about the pain and personal triumph of a son left behind.
