Ada the Crow dreams of getting married. She has come to the conclusion that it is important to be dressed up as sharply as possible, everything else happens all on its own – the pastor always marries the girl in the fanciest dress to the handsomest boy!
At the same time, Otto the Architect is out for a walk in the city looking for a site to build a new skyscraper. Ada notices Otto and feels shivers running down her back…A bridal gown is made quickly out of materials on hand. Her face made white with flour and her lips outlined with ketchup are enchanting. The grey crow turns into an extravagant vamp and in the twinkling of an eye, she is holding Otto’s hand in front of the altar. The wedding ceremony goes smoothly beyond all expectations, but then everyday life follows. Ada starts questioning whether decking oneself out in borrowed plumes really is the best way to achieve happiness.
