Poetic parable
In a tiny aul, forgotten in the steppe, a strange creature ñ an old man with huge broken wings broken ñ crashes during a thunderstorm. The people are scared and want to kill this creature, but gradually they get used to the man and leave him alone, even if they donít quite take to him. Only a little boy finds a true friend in him. Once, when saving the boyís life, the old winged man perishes and the boy lives with the dream that, sometime, he will grow wings and fly up into the sky to his best friend, the Old Angel.
