A delightful animated short about Dougal – a bird with a crippling fear – flying. His fear stops him migrating south in winter along with all the other birds, including Lucy, with whom he seems to have a burgeoning connection. Beautifully animated, this film is essentially about the rewards of facing our fears, and proving that the greatest rewards really do lie outside our comfort zone.
