A Cow in the Sky

The true story of a young Ethiopian immigrant in America wrestling with his identity and trying to understand the American Dream after his father’s murder by white supremacists.

On his very first solo flight as a pilot, a young immigrant finds himself wrestling with his past and his identity when his engine suddenly fails and his plane free falls. Based on the true story of Mulugeta Seraw, an Ethiopian college student killed in Portland, Oregon in 1988 by racist skinheads in a crime inspired by notorious white supremacist Tom Metzger, A Cow in the Sky is a film about the pain and personal triumph of a son left behind.
