Due to a new bridge, the skipper of a ferryboat is suddenly without passengers. A coot looking for stuff for its nest provides a solution in this animation.
A coot and a ferry skipper live harmoniously side by side in and on a city river. When a new bridge is built across the river, from one day to the next the skipper has lost his passengers. However, the bird, busy gathering material for his nest, turns out to be the connecting factor that gives the ferry reason to sail again. A colourful animation about the significance of a community spirit.
