You Never Fly Alone

Flying The Nest
Release date
February 28 2019
Every year countless of migrating birds return to their home country after travelling thousands of miles over the sea, among them is a congregation of plovers lead by Dad. Dad tries to keep everyone safe during the dangerous flight but unfortunately some become prey to the ever-hungry falcon, Shadow, who has terrorized the lands for years. This year Mom and Dad are blessed with an inquisitive and energetic chick who they name Ploey. The plover chicks attend flight school during the final phase of their training. As the chicks take flight one by one, Shadow makes his move and grabs Ploey. Dad attacks Shadow so that Ploey can escape but perishes in an epic battle. Ploey is traumatized and loses faith in his ability to fly. Still unable to fly, Ploey makes it to Paradise Valley where a group of outcasts has gathered for winter. As summer approaches he begins thinking about Ploverina who is leading the Plovers on their way back over the ocean, with Shadow waiting for them. There is only one way to save his family and friends from the falcon‘s claws and that is to learn to fly and be the plover his father taught him to be.
