Wings of Courage is a true story of courage and loyalty. Set in Buenos Aires in 1930, it tells the tale of three legendary pioneer aviators–Henri Guillaumet, Jean Mermoz , and Antoine de St. Exupery–who made the first historic and extremely dangerous airmail flights across the Andes mountain range. It is also a story of passionate love between Guillaumet and his beautiful and devoted wife, Noelle.
