With busy parents, nine-year-old Katja is left to her own devices. She devotes most of her time to birds. One day during a thunderstorm she rescues a rare falcon chick and seeks shelter in the back of a lorry. She drops off to sleep and wakes up to find herself in a faraway foreign sea-side town, where her adventures begin for real. While she is exploring the town, the falcon chick flies off on his own, and Katja now has her work cut out; one of the foreigners she encounters is also a passionate bird lover, but he is a taxidermist! Katja must save Kiik come what may. Fortunately she makes friends with four brothers who are full of pranks and mischief. In no time at all they set about helping Katja, the Danish bird girl.
