A big bear in a zoo spends his time bored beyond belief as visitors wander past his cage – until he befriends a little red bird whose mother leaves it behind when it doesn’t learn to fly quickly enough. The bird loves to sing, and the bear likes music as well… but their styles don’t quite seem to work together. When the bird flies away one day, the bear wonders if he will ever see his friend again.
