A solitary, one winged creature called Wing is harassed by a group of oppressive crows due to being weak and different from them. He decides that he wants to overcome his disability and escape from the forest. He builds a catapult and a mechanical wing to accomplish this. When he launches himself away from the forest, the wing malfunctions, and he crashes into the territory of the crows. The crows are about to harm him, but are then lured away by a two-winged humanoid, who the crows attack instead. Wing finds the creature, and discovers it is a female of his own kind, and that the crows have torn one of her wings off. As the crows come towards them, Wing gets the idea that he and the female can fly in tandem by flapping each of their single wings while holding onto each other, and they manage to escape from the forest.
This story could allow for a number of discussions such as bullying, working with disabilities, working together as a team. The children could also discuss the quotation at the end of the animation from Luciano de Crescenzo: 'We are, each of us angels with only one wing; and we can only fly by embracing one another.'
Children could retell the story with some detailed descriptions of the hero of the story or the 'crows.' They could experiment with 1st/3rd person narrative. The children could write dialogue between the two winged creatures at the end and create anti bullying slogans to be displayed in the 'crows' community.
