Kalak lives with his family in a part of the world where the nests are old, the roofs are all damaged, the earth is dry, and there is never enough food. One day, they decide to leave everything behind, and fly off to a new part of the world…

Kalak's Jouney helps readers understand what it's like to leave your home and country with the hope of a new life, encouraging them to think about their own identity and what it would feel like to move some place completely different.
