Various birds, mice and bats take up residence in an old windmill. Frogs, crickets and fireflies make their music in an adjacent pond. A storm slowly approaches, building suspense. The wind turns the mill’s blades, which turn gears inside the mill. A small bird is nesting with eggs in a gear hole, and a cog threatens to crush them.
