The story is about a scarecrow doing his duty of scaring away the birds and fireflies in a farm, then someday one little bird which is escaping from a hunter approaches him and hides in his pocket. The scarecrow surprisingly looks at her wondering how some little bird would dare to come near him and tries to send her away.

This short animation is under the impression of love from the famous Persian philosopher Sohrevardi
