Synopsis

Alfred, a young hospital patient who loves hot-air balloons and dirigibles, thinks going to Heaven sounds kind of boring. With that in mind, Enzo, an eccentric and occasionally clumsy hospital orderly helps Alfred make the necessary preparations to board the magnificent airship that takes people to the glorious and magical land of Helium. Profoundly moving, this gentle film about inspiring hope in the face of death won a 2014 Academy Award.
