Every spring, 80% of the world’s Sandhill cranes stop in central Nebraska USA as they migrate north to their summer home. This tradition has taken place for millions of years. The Platte River is perfect for this majestic bird to rest, strengthen, and energize before they continue their journey.

The perfect cinematic canvas for stories of rediscovering the simplicity of appreciation.
