Home in the Sky
In this story, life on the rooftops of New York is brought into focus.
Light, a pure white homing pigeon leaves his New York city flock and we follow him on his journey through New York. He tries to find food. When it starts to rain Light flies into a subway train where he is picked up by a young boy who takes him home. The boy’s mother explains that Light’s leg band means he is a homing pigeon so he is set free, the bird’s instinct leads him back to his owner.
The boy does not forget him and each time he sees a flock of homing pigeons he thinks he sees Light.
