SYNOPSIS

“I want to tell you a story. A story about birds, which is also a story about forgetting. Once upon a time, the sky was full of birds. They were called the rulers of the skies. Born free, they knew no boundaries, until one day a tragic accident took place.” So begins the story in which the birds decide to give up flying for a safe life on the ground. Lead by power hungry leader, they soon do not only forget their ability to fly but out of fear even forget all their wishes and dreams. Until one day a young bird-girl sets out on a quest to uncover the forgotten knowledge and relearn flying. A parable on freedom and self-determination for audiences from 8 years upwards
