A parrot, kept as a pet by a merchant, dreams of flying free with his friends. When the merchant travels to India and meets other parrots in the forest, he brings back a message (and secret advice) for the caged bird.

A nice tale, based on a poem by 13th Century Persian literary figure, Rumi, but the cartoonish illustrations didn't serve the story.
