Storyline

This movie is about a young Hopi Indian boy who defies tribal law and frees a sacred, sacrificial eagle. He is banished from his village to the wilderness, but the eagle teaches him hunting skills and cares for him. He eventually returns, and when the other boys in the tribe reject him, the boy runs, climbs to a cliff area and jumps off. Before he reaches the ground, the boy turns into an eagle. At the end, the two eagles fly side by side...one of them wearing a blue-beaded necklace. Written by Anonymous

Phantastic Movie!!!
4 February 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie when I was about 7 years old - which was 33 years ago - and I never forgot this movie! I was deeply touched and moved by the brave little boy and the beautiful eagle. And I just couldn't believe it when he turned into an eagle just when everyone in the theater thought he was going to die...

My sister was in the movie with me and I asked her recently if she remembered the movie we saw with the boy and the eagle and she said she remembered it like we saw it only yesterday. So it isn't just me.

This movie is a MUST SEE !!!

You will never forget it - just like my sister and me...
