The adventure of a baby seagull being cared for by four cats, and the commitment of one of them, the noble Zorbas, to teaching her to fly, make this  story a tender and moving family experience that not only addresses such important values as solidarity, unconditional love and the need to care for our environment, but also leads us, by way of the animal world, to serious reflections on human behavior.

Do visible borders define one's homeland? Exile breaks up families, and years of separation produce the mirage of a reunion. Because without love we would have no homeland. Nowhere in the world would we belong, except there, where love is.
