The Story   

The Land of Paradise has become overrun by the most spectacular flock of thousands of radiant birds. The only problem? All the animals of Paradise are paralyzed in awe of the sight and their song. 

No one is eating, no one is sleeping. The skies are growing darker...


The leader of the animals, Mayor Owl, decides to seek a favor from an unlikely friend to save his fellow animals and the land they call home. 


But, will it work?

The Boy
