Three birds have migrated to Malta for the winter. The journey has been long and perilous, but they’ve finally touched down and have been reunited after another long year apart.

They share triumphant tunes and terrible tales of their aviation adventures…but who’s the turquoise feathered intruder, and why does he refuse to share his song?

Join three music-making birds in their attempt to discover the truth about where Tingo The Tuneless Bird really came from, and why there’s no way he can ever go back.

Tliet għasafar ġew ipassu f’Malta għax-xitwa. Il-vjaġġ kien twil u perikoluż, imma fl-aħħar waslu u reġgħu sabu lil xulxin wara sena twila oħra ’l bogħod minn xulxin.

Jaqsmu għanjiet glorjużi u ġrajjiet terribbli tal-avventuri tal-ajru tagħhom…imma min hu dan l-intruż turkważ mimli rix, u għalfejn ma jridx jaqsam l-għanja tiegħu mal-oħrajn?

Ingħaqad ma’ tliet għasafar jgħannu huma u jippruvaw jiskopru l-verità dwar minn fejn ġie Tingo l-Għasfur li Ma Jgħannix, u għalfejn m’hemm l-ebda ċans li jista’ qatt jerġa’ jmur lura.
