An imaginative child becomes fascinated with the idea of flying. He devises various ways to pursue his dream. Using umbrellas to balloons he discovers that achieving flight is more difficult than he anticipated. Everyone has dreams, but sometimes we need to let them go. Or better yet, give them to someone else.
