This will be a vivid story about the relationships between birds and people in city.
The films main characters are the population of Common Terns, which lives on the printing house roof of the Riga Press Building during Summer. This population is believed to be the largest of its kind in northern Europe.
Is it a never-ending struggle or harmony between species, 200 pairs of Terns, or a million inhabitants, who does what to whom?
During the film various human attitudes towards the birds will emerge. The attitude of the birds is clear - they view things from above.
