Early morning and a ruffle of feathers, a shadow gliding through the backyard. High above your house Father Hawk circles, sharp eyes searching for prey. Swoosh! He dives after chipmunks, crows, sparrows, squirrels. Screech! The sun hangs low in the sky as three hungry chicks wait. Will they eat today?
At the same time seven-year-old Alma, lonely and desperately missing her mother, decides to rescue a dog as a surprise for Mami's return, a scared pup named Lulu is rescued by volunteers from the side of the highway, and is eagerly awaiting a place to call home.
