Flash (RIP - Rest In Peace) is thankfully dead + gone forever.

You might be able to download an old copy of Flash from Adobe.

Likely you can find other old Flash installers (which will hack your machine if you run them).

Once you get Flash working, play the Flash content + screen record the playback, then you can determine your next steps.

Reach out to the source of the PDF and see if they now have a non Flash version.
