Choco is a liitle bird who lives on his own and wishes he had a mother, so he decides to go and look for one. He meets lots of different animals but none of them seem right as they don't look like him. At last, he meets Mrs Bear who is very different from him but treats him kindly and takes him home to live with her odd assortment of children: a hippo, alligator and a pig.
