Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2018
A short but endearing story about making new friends and finding acceptance, as a little bird name Sabaku goes in search of a new place to call home. He tries to connect with different species, however soon finds out that it isn’t as easy as it seems. Our little hero is in for a bumpy ride, but being the impossibly adorable character he is, he won’t rest until he succeeds.
