Manou grows up believing he is a seagull, like his parents. He strives to swim, fish, and fly like they do, but he’s not very good at it. At summer race, he discovers why—to his great shock, he finds out he was adopted as a much-hated swift. His family still stands by him, claiming he is a bird like them. His seagull brother, Luc, admires him wildly.
One night, Manou fails to guard the eggs, and loses one to the rats. The seagulls are outraged and he’s expelled from home. Distraught, he runs away, and meets Parcival, a funny Guinea Fowl who cannot fly but turns out to be a great friend. When Manou meets Kalifa, a stunning female swift, he checks out the swifts‘ way with his new buddies, Yusuf and Poncho, and falls for Kalifa along the way!
Stakes are high as rats hijack swift eggs and a big storm threatens the seagulls. For Manou to save them both, he’ll have to be courageous like a seagull and inventive like a swift.
