In this version, young Peter flies to an island and introduces himself as Peter the Bird. Upon learning he is not a bird, but human, he loses faith in his ability to fly. Stuck on the island, Peter asks the birds for help in hopes of returning home to his mother. When he finally returns to the window of his home and sees her, he discovers that in life, there are no second chances.
