Oh corbeau! Oh corbeau!

Oh Crow! Oh Crow!

Oh Krähe! Oh Krähe!

A world of darkness envelops the black crow, until a single red feather lures it away to a red bird in red backdrop. A mere touch with one wing tip is all it takes: suddenly, the young crow turns a brilliant red too. Over and over, it keeps swapping colours – until, at last, it has taken on a plumage of its own. A universe of paper and mystical sound comes to life in this adaptation of a fairytale of the Oji-Cree, a Canadian Indigenous people.
