Rio

Adopted as a chick after he survived being smuggled to the States, Blu, a blue macaw, has lived his life in Minnesota with Linda, his owner. One faithful day, a Dr. Tulio Montero arives to explain that Blu is likely the last male of his species and asks Linda to come to Rio de Janeiro to his aviary, where the only known female is currently held. Reluctantly, Linda and Blu arrive in Rio, where Blu finds Jewel, who is determined to escape back to the wild. Captured by poachers, the two wind up chained together, forcing the two to overcome their differences - including Blu's inability to fly - and work together.
