A young kestrel wants nothing more than to fly, but a wing injury holds her back. She finally decides to take matters in her own talons, attempting to use leaves to her advantage. Although it works, her struggles are brought to the attention of a stalking cat, who brings her to a kind old man who makes her a prosthetic to help her take flight.
