The timeless journey of a leaf that is set adrift from the river shore, and then dragged out through a rapid river current. The meandering twists and turns are interrupted by a fishing bird, which swoons down and accidentally grabs the leaf in its talons. Now airborne and soaring towards the clouds, higher and higher revealing a scenic river valley. The turbulent wind knocks the leaf loose, and it gradually descends down to touch a nearby placid lake. Ripples and gentle breezes, nudge the leaf towards the lakeshore, where it concludes its drifting journey.
