"Cirque Du Soleil: Varekai" explores the ideas of freedom, longing, and sensuality in a new way. Icarus (Anton Chelnekov) starts the film falling from the sky, after he has flown too close to the sun and rendered his wings useless. He lands in a forest of fantastic and colorful creatures, weak and dejected from his failed flight to the sun. All of the creatures, but especially Le Promise (Olga Pikhienko) must teach Icarus to find his wings again in a completely different way.
