A small, orphaned seagull learns to fish by watching a group of nearby eagles. Thinking that he, too is an eagle, the seagull swoops down to the water to try it himself. However, this angers the other eagles who can’t understand why he isn’t acting like the other seagulls that are scavenging for garbage. Unable to integrate with the eagles or his own kind, the seagull embarks on his own path of self-discovery — and learns a life-changing lesson along the way.
