Kalle, a 10 year old boy lives in a colourful world full of magic, fairytale and songs. One day Kalle gets a sister and she arrives into the world with two skin flaps on her back that Kalle is convinced are wings.

Determined to prevent the amputation of his sister's wings, Kalle sets out on a rescue mission in a race against time.
