Description:

A parable about meaning of life, starring a recently-hatched chick who can transform into different creatures.

The newly hatched chick could not compete with his siblings for a nest, so he decided to wander to find a place to live. Then he fell into the mouth of a giant fish, rode on the back of a turtle, almost became a butterfly chrysalis, and even disguised himself as the mouse king and the frog prince.

After 1989, Petkevich moved from Sverdlovsk Film Studio to Belarusfilm. He made two 20-minute animated films for adults in 1992 and 1993, but they cannot be found online - this is the earliest of his Belarusian films that is currently available.
