Adopted and from childhood brought up by storks, young sparrow Richie is sure that he is one of them. But when it comes time to migrate to Africa, his family has to tell him the truth and leave him in the forest, because he is not a bird of passage, so he could not survive such a long flight. Wishing to prove to everyone that he is a real stork, Richie decides to go south on his own. His new friends join him on this journey: the eccentric owl Olga, who has an imaginary friend, and Kiki - a narcissistic parrot singing songs in the style of disco. Could Richie gain his end and accept himself?
