The musical comedy is set in New York City and tells the story of how Pierre navigates life as a mixed breed, not fully accepted by the pigeon or hawk communities. Due to this unfortunate event, the pigeon-hawk goes on a journey to find a place where he is accepted. While on his voyage, he meets an interesting group of friends. One includes a bear (who just escaped from the Central Park Zoo), an owl (who is described as a mad genius), and two city squirrels (who both have attitudes). During his mission of finding himself, Pierre becomes an inspiration for all animals to acquire a new mindset about life.

It’s good to witness Nickelodeon veterans, Cannon (All That)  Thompson (All That and Kenan & Kel) and Daily (Rugrats), come together to work on this film.
