Barnaby Smith has tried to fly, like a bird, his entire life. He has jumped off roofs nine times, he has broken every bone in his body … and he has been at the asylum, heavily medicated for his own safety, for the past twenty-three years. When Dr. Martha Lewis takes his case, she makes it her obsession to save him – and soon finds that he instead may be her own salvation. A story about life, love, belief, compromise, freedom and yes, the dream and the impossibility of human flight.
A most unusual journey into love, friendship and freedom by a psychiatrist and her patient who thinks he can fly.
