Winter can be a harsh and unrelenting season; especially for a newborn Plover. But Ploey is no ordinary chick.

After an attack by the formidable falcon Shadow, the numbers in a flock of Plover are vastly depleted whilst migrating back to their homeland. However, when all hope seems to be lost, beauty emerges in the form of an energetic newborn chick, Ploey.

Quickly learning the ways of the flock, Ploey lives life to its fullest and meets Ploveria, a female chick with whom he immediately falls in love. A twist of fate leaves Ploey alone and unable to fly, as his flock departs across the ocean for winter. Isolated and afraid, he is forced to embark on a journey where he must use his cunning, and rely on the help of newly-found friends to make it through the winter and see his true love once more…

“Ploey – Flying the Nest’ is the heart-warming tale of how far a little bird will go to be reunited with his true love.

Catch Earache’s wonderful Harriet Perring as Ploeveria, as well as cameos from the brilliant Doña Croll and Kaizer Akhtar.
