Alana was born with crooked legs and she has an operation so that she can walk and run like any other girl. Her father worries a lot about her and, so that she is not alone during her convalescence, he gives her a goldfinch that he found injured at the bottom of a tree. The girl and the goldfinch become friends and keep each other company, until Alana recovers and can finally go out to run and play in the countryside. Whilst she is enjoying the fresh air, she realises that the goldfinch is still at home, locked in his cage. She runs back to find the bird and decides to release him. But the next day the goldfinch comes back to appear by her window, as their friendship is forever.
