De regels van het vliegen

The Rules Of Flying

THE RULES OF FLYING

Rule number one: you really have to want to do it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Rule number two: you have to have faith. If a bird were to doubt its wings or the mechanics of flight for a moment it would fall to the ground immediately.
Eleven-year-old Elin devotes herself to her gymnastic exercises with a will power that is both astonishing and tireless. Inspired by the pulsating beats of the music, she is constantly thinking up new rules and in so doing, pushes herself to the limits. Elin firmly believes that she can fly. At least, as long as she sticks to her rules . . .
