A boy finds an injured crane. Based on the poem "Wing" written by Ukrainian poet Borys Oliynyk (Boris Oleynik).

The original poem (which is written in the Russian language) can be read here.

The video above is the Ukrainian-language version. There is also a Russian-language version, but it's not currently on Youtube. They are the same except that the title & credits are in a different language, and the Ukrainian one has more film scratches, better colour, no logo in the upper right, and only sound from the right side.
