The irresistible story of 80-something bachelor farmer Bobby Coote. He left school at 13 and says his reading and writing isn't great. Bobby fixes clocks and spends a lot of time in his back shed making violins from old furniture. But he’s never lost sight of a lifelong dream to fly. Capturing the wonder of one man’s dreams, The Man Who Wanted To Fly is a unique journey into a disappearing Irish border hinterland and shows that it is never too late to live your dream.
