The children of a city are tired of the grown ups. By a kite, they fly away to a city in which there is no adults. There, the kids take control of the city and do what they want to. But after a while, due to inexperience, the city's regularity starts to fade and the regretful children decide to return. Meanwhile, the city's adults who are looking for their children, find out that they have been neglecting the children. Eventually, the kids return to the city with their kites. This experience proves them that they both need each other.
