Manou the Swift
MANOU grows up believing he is a seagull like his parents. He strives to swim, fish and fly like them but seems not very gifted. At Summer race he discovers Why. To his great shock he finds out he was adopted as an offspring of the much-hated Swifts. His family still stands by him, claiming he is a bird like them. Especially his seagull brother Luc admires him wildly. One night MANOU fails to guard the eggs and surrenders one to the rats. The seagulls are outraged and MANOU is expelled from home. Utterly disappointed he retreats and stumbles across Parcival, a funny Guinea Fowl who cannot fly but turns out to be a deep-rooted pal. MANOU checks out the swifts‘ way with his new buddies Yusuf and Poncho when he bumps into Kalifa, a stunning lady swift. Suddenly he is struck by an entangling flirt on top of all other troubles. Stakes are high as Rats hijack Swift eggs and a big Storm threatens the Seagulls. MANOU is committed to save them both – courageous like a seagull and inventive like a swift.
