A flock of robins is teaching their young ones to fly. Meanwhile, a boy with an air rifle is shooting at everything in the house. He goes out into the garden and shoots at a nest, then at one of the little birds. The bird falls to the ground, and it appears that the boy has killed it.
The robins stage a bird funeral. The boy's conscience gets to him, and he falls to his kneels, crying and praying for the bird. The sky also weeps with large tears of rain, which cause the little bird to awaken. The rainbow appears, and the boy breaks his air rifle and feeds the birds, never to menace them again.
