Creatures light up the stage in a visually stimulating performance.

In this epic adventure for the whole family, birds grow 16 feet tall, cats fight with light sabers, and 60 electroluminescent creatures light up the stage. The story begins with an outcast young bird trying to come to terms with a strange new power he's been given. Banished from his tribe for being different, he wanders his planet where danger lurks everywhere. A chance encounter with a warrior cat creates an unlikely friendship and together they save their world from an alien species seeking to destroy it.
