Creatures like the weaverbird Fiyonk who decorates her nest with colourful stones and shells, makes wonderful hats with things which she collects from garbage dumps and goes on an imaginery trip, the two seahorses named Çia and Si and their romance, salmons who overcome death in order to keep a promise to each other, a stork who gets a new life and philosophy after missing his time to migrate while trying to save a wild goose from hunters, the exuberant heart of an old lighthouse, the lonely yet dance-crazy Albatros who choses freedom over life in a colony, and finally boastful Medusa who came to understand during her imprisonment in a pond, that a pond can appear larger than the ocean.
