One day, the Perfect Machines appeared in the Mill Valley. The machines do everything so perfectly that everyone has forgotten what it was like to dream, and even to wish for things. That is, apart from The Bird-man who dreams of impossible flight, and Anna, the dressmaker, would like to sew fabulous new clothes instead of just doing alterations. Together, this unlikely pair will show the villagers that machines cannot replace everything – especially dreams.
