EN - It’s a hot summer day and the various aeromodelling clubs in the area prepare themselves for their annual championship. This year’s championship marks the final game for the modelling club ‘the Sunflyers’. Their membership has decreased significantly throughout the years and there remain only three members: the chairman Stefaan, his secretary Ludo and his grandson Sammy. In a effort to celebrate their final appearance, the men invite the 83-year-old honorary member Hubert Van de Woestijne to the show.

he Sunflyers arrive at the championship with their minds set on defeating their long time rivals, the Dragonflyers. However, they quickly face the Dragonflyers’ chairman Freddy who has no intention of letting them win. From start to finish he tries to make their lives a misery. Hubert becomes the Sunflyers’ last hope.
