Duration: 5 minutes

Three friends are going on a quest to find a mysterious golden bird that lives deep in the forest. But first, they have to work out who's carrying what. This animated parable explores the concepts of fairness and equality and is part of a series of five fun and engaging short films that explore fundamental philosophical concepts through everyday questions that children ask, and adults often struggle to answer.

The films provide a springboard into wider philosophical exploration and debate in the classroom and beyond. Each film consists of a beautifully animated parable, intercut with a variety of different children's responses.

The series explore concepts such as morality, identity, perception and equality and aim to help Key Stage 2 students to think laterally and creatively.
