Who rules the skies, man or bird? A collision between airplane and bird can lead to catastrophe. Various organisations do everything they can to keep the feathered nuisances out of the airspace around the airport. In a visually interesting way, this documentary shows a battle that is not always gentle. Parties involved - from hunter and falconer to pilot and robot maker - talk about their different relationships with the flying troublemakers. A game of chess that, despite the use of modern technology, is far from over.
