A heartwarming retelling of a Japanese folktale about greed and the importance of friendship. A kind-hearted old man took loving care of a sparrow. One day, his bad-tempered wife cut off the sparrow’s tongue causing it to fly away. The old man searched far and wide to apologise, and was rewarded with a gift from the sparrow. His greedy wife visited the sparrow, with a very different result.
