Desperate for love, two twelve-year-old boys steal five new born crows from a nest and tenderly raise the three that live. But guilt over the mother bird's grief leads them to ponder the joy and pain of the relationships with their parents, friends, and the country preacher who instills grown-up wisdom in both of their troubled hearts. Moments of suspense and touching scenes of family intimacy combine adventure and philosophy that speak on a personal level to young and old alike.
