Rewriting Ernesto& ‘s mysterious and questionable past, Paco turns him into a hero and a celebrity, motivating the entire town to rally behind Ernesto to help rebuild his plane.

Inspired by true events, The Runway tells the story of a boy needing a father, a man wanting a family, and a town willing to do anything for a hero.
