A baby eagle falls from its nest and is badly injured. A little boy finds the eagle and helps him recover. The eagle is Eddie and the boy is Jeff, and they enjoy many adventures together. Years later, Eddie is healthy in every way, except he cannot fly. His wings were badly broken in his fall, but Eddie enjoys a new kind of life because of the special bond and love he and Jeff share. One day something tragic happened to a peregrine falcon, named Freddie. Freddie's wings had been nearly shot off. He was sad and lost his will to live. Eddie tried to cheer him up and be his friend, but Freddie wanted no part of Eddie or anything else. He felt useless and wished to die. A freak accident almost granted Freddie's wish, when faced with death, he realized he wanted to live after all. Eddie amazingly rescued Freddie and they became best friends and the adventures with Jeff continue.
