/ Project description /

One day, on a city junkyard, a 12 year old boy Emil meets a young pelican, Ro, with this meeting crossing their paths forever. Emil is a photography passionate looking for a friend; Ro leaves his hometown Pelican Island, following the sound of music, travelling to the city despite his father’s warnings. In the city Ro finds a hideout in Emil’s room, and the only person that knows the secret is Elza – Emil’s neighbour. Their trip to the opera house begins a whole new adventure – Ro’s sudden appearance on the stage launches his career as a grand singer. Thanks to the costume he wears, nobody recognises that he is a pelican. But our friends can’t be fooled by Ro’s interim stabilisation – mean Janitor is following their every step. He owns the city junkyard, and has a history of polluting the Pelican Bay. Together – Elza, Emil and Pelican, will face him, bringing peace back to the bay.
