Raised among chickens, Gyro is an eagle unaware of his true identity. Gyro was raised with the other free-range chickens that the farmer has affectionately named after various foods. Many of the chickens tease Gyro for looking different. Despite his disadvantages, he manages to befriend Scampi, who is also rejected by the other chickens. As a false chicken, Gyro is destined to become dinner. But if he can remember his true identity and learn to fly, he will be free to soar above his surroundings and take his rightful place as a majestic bird of prey set apart from all the others. When a teacher brings his class to the farm for a field trip, he recognizes Gyro for who he is and asks to be allowed to teach him to fly. Gyro doesn't have much time because two roosters in the pen are plotting to get rid of him once and for all. Our children are taught to follow the crowd.
