But Reenie is fascinated by her aunt's hobby of falconry. When she finds the injured young eagle owl Rufus, Beatrice advises her against it: you can't tame an eagle owl, this king of the forest is too proud. But Reenie is deeply touched by the majestic animal, and as she begins to work with the young bird, she develops an intense relationship with him ... But can Rufus ever regain enough self-confidence to survive in the wild? And will Reenie open up and give her heart free rein?...
