Capture the flag, the trailer

Capture the Flag
A strange little film. A Spanish film, Capture The Flag, a simple story of trying to save the Apollo XI flag.

“Capture the Flag” turns on Mike Goldwing, a plucky, determined 12-year-old kid who lives in Florida, son and grandson of astronauts, whose grandfather Frank was meant to fly to the moon with Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong on Apollo XI. Until a few days before the moon mission, his baby son, now Mike’s father, got chicken-pox and Frank had to pull out. Blaming his son for the frustration of his whole career and horrified at this sense of blame, Frank has distanced himself from the family.

When a dastardly Texas billionaire, Richard Carson, plans to fly to the moon, destroy the Apollo XI flag, claim that the moon landings never happened and claim the moon’s vast mineral sources for himself, and the U.S government launches its own moon mission, Mike determines to stowaway on the rocket to help frustrate Carson but above all ensure at least one Goldwig gets to the moon, ending his family’s frustration and reconciling his grandpa and dad.
