Original Title: BEMOL

A featherless nightingale sings in the forest. Its lullaby puts the crying bear cub to sleep, calms down the fighting squirrels and entertains a couple of swans in a nearby pond. One day, a storm breaks over the forest and the nightingale, without feathers to protect him, catches a cold and can’t sing anymore.
