This journey in time starts with Caius Zip, the time traveller, in a forest in the outskirts of Paris, where he helps a pilot climb out of this strange flying machine that resembles a modern light aircraft, the Demoiselle of Santos Dumont. It is 1909 and the bubbling cultural, artistic and technological scenario of Paris is like no other in the world. In addition to Santos Dumont, Caius meets interesting characters, such as: Matisse, Marcel Proust, Nijinsky, Eiffel, Sigmund Freud and Isadora Duncan, all of them trying to give wings to their dreams. There are also some surprising revelations about who invented the airplane, the pioneers and their contributions and patent wars.
