Yannis, a 14 year old boy, lives an isolated life with his dad on a small Greek island. Since the death of his mother, the relationship between the two has been deteriorating. One day, Yannis finds a young pelican and decides to take it home. This unusual friendship, and his meeting with the impulsive 15 year old girl Angéliki, will mark the beginning of an idyllic friendship that will lead to reconciliation with his father.
