Most people come from their mother's tummy. Koos Steggerda came from an airplane. Koos wants desperately to fit in - he even adds streaks of blonde to his straight black hair - yet no matter how hard he tries, his small size and dark features set him apart from his tall blond parents and the other people in his town. But one day, strange music draws Koos outside where he meets a band of Peruvian musicians who welcome him as one of their own. Koos learns that he, too, is a descendent of the Incas - and when Koos' mother becomes pregnant with a "real" Steggerda, Koos rejects his family and sets out on a journey to become the Indian he was born to be. This beautiful family movie swells with lighthearted whimsy while exploring powerful themes of identity, self-discovery, and the true meaning of family.
