Summary After 18 years in prison, Viktor Khadem (Don Hany) is a man who has almost given up on life. For his final 12 months, he is sentenced to Won Wron, a low-security prison 200 km outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, where Senior Officer Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors - beautiful, fearsome, proud eagles, falcons and owls. With the odds against him Matt chooses Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic wedge-tailed eagle with a two-metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible. Matt offers Viktor the job of running the Raptor Rehab Program, where he is able to choose his own crew. Viktor at first struggles with even being asked to do something let alone being allowed to decide who to do it with. When he chooses Paul (Xavier Samuel) (to protect him) and Shane (Mark Leonard Winter) (to keep him close), it's the first decision he has made for himself in 18 years. Healing is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit - in the most unlikely place, for the most singular men, through the most unusual catalyst. Inspired by true events, healing is an Australian feature film written and directed by Craig Monahan, the multi-award winning director of The Interview - Winner of Best Film - Australian Film Institute Awards.
