Whistleless / Fløjteløs

Siri Melchior (DK, 2009)

Fløjteløs (Siri Melchior, DK, 2009)

In a colourful and vibrant town, all the people and animals can whistle - with one exception, namely the small bird called Whistleless. He flies around trying to whistle, but he is hopeless to the point that all others give up teaching him. But all Whistleless wants, is to take part in the music and festivities of the town. After going through trials and tribulations Whistleless realizes that he has what it takes.
