Based on an article by Susan Orlean in the New Yorker, "Little Wing" is a warm-hearted coming-of-age/buddy movie that follows the formation of an unlikely bond between elderly pigeon fancier Jaan (Brian Cox) and lost teenager Kaitlyn (Brooklynn Prince). Intrigued? You can watch "Little Wing" exclusively on Paramount Plus.

Reeling from her parents divorce, the mystery that surrounds her father, and the pending loss of her family home, 13-year-old Kaitlyn finds herself slipping into the strange (but also potentially lucrative) sport that is pigeon racing.

Stealing one of the Jaan's valuable birds would quickly solve her family’s financial woes – but it would also mean the end of their friendship. It's dilemma that will no doubt have you shedding a tear or two.

Brian Cox brings out a different kind of cranky to the one familiar with fans of "Succession" while Brooklynn Prince brings all the teenage angst her troubled but determined young character demands.
