When portrait photographer Marcus finds himself in an awkward situation after running over a young girl’s cat, he attempts to ease the problem by inventing a story about its disappearance. Telling the girl her pet has gone on a round-the-world trip, he finds himself having to embellish his white lie through a series of postcards - but this solution soon threatens to become more trouble than it was worth.
Some stags get all the birds. But not Lone Stag. He lacks a certain something on the antlers front: antlers. And without them he has little chance of getting any birds to help him make music for the spring jam. So far Lone Stag has recruited one bird; his friend the Sleepy Kiwi. But this hasn’t gone so well: Kiwi can’t sing. So Lone Stag ditches his friend and when a desperate bid for attention among his better endowed peers goes awry, Lone Stag is propelled in to the firing line; shaken and stirred; dropped from a height and then carried on a wave of discovery until he’s finally illuminated in the art of making beautiful music, his own way. There’s just one catch: In order to make his new ability work in the wild, he’s going to have to realize that the help of his friend is actually something he can’t do without.
