Tobias' biggest wish is to have a pet bird. One day he saves a sick sparrow, who, it turns out, is really The Blind Fairy. As a reward for saving her, the fairy grants Tobias a wish. But things go wrong for the Blind Fairy, who unfortunately transforms Tobias into a green parrot. As a parrot Tobias finds himself in a spot. He is held captive by an evil bird merchant, and unless he changes back to his original state within 29 hours, he will remain a bird forever.
