Hatching Eagles
The national ski jumping team of China is trained in Finland, starting from scratch just three years before the Beijing Winter Olympics. Under the guidance of legendary coach Mika Kojonkoski, in an unprecedented training project, young athletes strive to represent their country on the world stage. Training is tough and the cold is biting, but relationships warm the heart. The team becomes a family, and the pursuit of joy ultimately becomes the most important factor in their development.
