In September, Killarney moves at a peaceful pace. The harbor is empty, fall colors light up the surrounding hills, and for most people here, the season is over. But for another species a few miles to the north, itıs just beginning. Hunted almost to extinction, Trumpeteer Swans lost their instinctive knowledge of migration. Today, a small dedicated team seeks to reverse the damage done, training them behind an ultralight plane, and creating a new bond of trust between human and bird. Now the final test is at hand. When the swans fly south this winter, will they return to Ontario next spring, for their first homecoming in 150 years?
