  • When the outcast becomes a hero.


    One morning, the wind blows so hard that a raven falls from its nest. John the postman passes by and collects it which does not please Jeanne, his wife. The crow, now named Caruso, has gained strength, learned to fly and to talk… But, he uses this new talent to make fun of Jeanne and the people of the village, and therefore is hated by everyone! Soon, he has to leave the village. He becomes the towns outcast until one night, a barn catches fire and it is Caruso who warns the firemen...
