Legacy is the story of one boy’s difficulties to live up to his family’s expectations when the burden of his heritage is suddenly thrust upon him. The film centers around a boy named Theo, who is burdened with a family aviation heirloom that he fears he can never live up to. In an attempt to overcome his struggle, he climbs to the top of the aviation mountain, dressed in the family flight suit, with the hat of his great-grandfather in his hand. In his failure to muster up the courage to take his first leap, he is plagued with an even more difficult task, when a fanboy of his follows him up the cliff and is suddenly blown off the edge.
