Blue Wings

Children's parable about freedom and responsibility. A giraffe, trapped in a hollow baobab after a flood, comes to an agreement with an exhausted blue bird. The keeping - or breaking - of their promise drives each day forward as she struggles with her conscience in the face of temptation. All the while, the blue bird suffers captivity, until finally, a gazelle, also in flight across the desert which now surrounds the baobab, triggers a way out. For each of them must learn that freedom cannot be achieved by betrayal, or by good intentions or prayer; and that true freedom comes, first and foremost, from within.
