Robot Roz is no ordinary robot. She learned to survive on an island and now has to learn to survive on a farm. However, Roz has left her son back on the island and desperately wants to make it back to him. She tells every animal she can about her son Brightbill back home. The rumors spread and soon Brightbill hears the story his mother is telling everyone. Brightbill decides to migrate on a different route this year and finds his mother Roz. Together they escape and attempt to make it back to their home. The humans they encounter are not pleased when they see a “rogue” robot, but Roz’s maker is impressed. With the maker's help, the two are able to live on their island with the condition that no others will ever find out about Roz.
