Dopo essere capitata in una macchia di petrolio nelle acque del mare del Nord, la gabbiana Kengah atterra in fin di vita sul balcone del gatto Zorba, al quale strappa tre promesse solenni: di non mangiare l'uovo che lei sta per deporre, di averne cura e di insegnare a volare al piccolo che nascerà. Così, alla morte di Kengah, Zorba cova l'uovo e, quando si schiude, accoglie la neonata gabbianella nella buffa e affiatata comunità felina del porto di Amburgo. Ma come può un gatto insegnare a volare? Per mantenere la terza promessa, Zorba dovrà ricorrere all'aiuto di tutti, anche a quello di un uomo. In una storia che ha la grazia di una fiaba e la forza di una parabola, il grande scrittore cileno tocca i temi a lui più cari: l'amore per la natura, la generosità disinteressata e la solidarietà, anche fra <<diversi>>
