Inspired by true events, Healing is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit–in the most unlikely place for the most unlikely men.

Viktor Khadem (Dony Hany) is a man who has almost given up on life. Near the end of his sentence he is sent to Won Wron, a low-security prison farm 200km outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, where Senior Case Worker Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) establishes a unique programme to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors–beautiful, fearsome, proud eagles, falcons and owls. Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle with a two metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible.
