On the edge of a majestic waterfall, nestled in the shell of an enormous Baobab tree is a bustling city of birds called Zambezia. Famous for being the safest city in all of Africa, Zambezia has become the breeding sanctuary throughout the river valley where birds of every feather can flock together in harmony and peace.
Kai (a young Falcon) leaves his remote outpost against his Father's wishes to join the prestigious Hurricane defense flyers that patrol the skies keeping Zambezia safe. Kai's father goes after him but is captured by the notorious Budzo, a giant lizard who has conspired with the scavenging Marabous to take over Zambezia. Kai learns of his father's capture and finds himself at the centre of that deadly plot. If Kai is to save Zambezia, he will have to learn that not all battles are won with fast and fancy flying.
Set in the spectacular Zambezi River Valley, the film draws on this unique natural environment as its inspiration – an inspiration which can be seen in the beautiful, quintessentially African elements of the film.
