“One Crow Flies Like An Eagle” is the story of an unfortunate baby crow. A cuckoo laid an egg inside his nest when his parents were gone. The inevitable happened – upon hatching, the baby cuckoo pushed him out of the nest. However, the little crow is lucky not to succumb to the dangers of the jungle. Instead, he is rescued by an eagle who takes him home. The eagle’s entire extended family adopts him and grows completely attached to him.


The baby crow, feeling betrayed by his original parents, refuses to return. He is unable to bear the guilt of becoming a permanent burden on the eagle family, despite the fact that the eagle family has no complaints about that. He deeply wishes for a miracle, which is, to turn into an eagle and fly like one.
