Fly free, fly free
in the sky so blue,
when you do a good deed
it will come back to you.
Fly Free! Set in Vietnam, a small girl named Mai starts a chain of "karma," or good deeds, where one kind act leads to another. This circle of giving finally allows her to see her dream come true -- the release of her favorite caged birds at the temple.
