The Boy Who Wanted Wings: Love in the Time of War

2 March 2017

History comes alive in this heartrending tale of a young man fighting to realise his dreams.

Aleksy, a Tatar raised by a Polish peasant family, holds in his heart the wish to become a Polish hussar, a lancer who carries into battle a device attached to his back that holds dozens of eagle feathers. As a Tatar and as a peasant, this is an unlikely quest. When he meets Krystyna, the daughter of the noble who owns the land that his parents work, he falls hopelessly in love. But even though she returns his love, race and class differences make this quest as impossible as that of becoming a hussar.

Under the most harrowing and unlikely circumstances, one day Aleksy must choose between his dreams.
