Allora is a magical place where fish fly through the air. Alberto has lived there all his life and became the town’s coffin maker when his family passed away 31 years ago. He longs to die so he may be reunited with his family. Everything changes the day he meets Tito and his pet bird Fia. Tito is in hiding from his father and Alberto must help him become free of his fear. This story is about healing and believing in the impossible.
