A decade after the death of her often airborne, adventure-loving Uncle Clive, filmmaker Ashely Williams commemorates his life and death with an adventure of her own; paragliding over the Port Hills in Christchurch. This short documentary takes the form of a video diary as Williams signs up to take the jump and submits to the essential on ground training for her big day. Williams interviews her mother Denise (who helped with the film's production) about the character and drive that made Clive Heydenrych such a vibrant man. Director Williams is a past national finalist in the 48Hours film contest, and also an actor.
