As a lone sandpiper's feathers drift down from the sky during its long flight, they shine a powerful light on the importance of kindness, hope and security for the children below.

It is time for the sandpiper journey to its winter home, half a world away. Along the arduous journey, it loses a feather which floats down and provides a glimmer of softness and beauty for a young boy whose home has been reduced to rubble. Another lost feather provides a playful, loving moment for a girl and her little brother, migrants on a long dusty road to a better life. Yet another feather falls, giving a family a moment of hope in their flooded out village. Finally arriving at its winter home, the bird loses one more feather, grasped out of the air by a little girl. Both bird and child are safe and sound in their cozy home by the water . . . and realize how lucky they are.
