Summary Fefo is responsible for the Rio Maximo reserve in Cuba, where thousands of pink flamingos arrive at the end of June from Colombia, Venezuela and all the Carribean islands, to reproduce in what has become the largest nesting zone for Caribbean pink flamingos. Along with his men, Fefo has created this reserve to shelter young flamingos abandoned by their parents during the great migration, either because they were born too late, or because they were too weak to travel. To capture them, they have to reach the flamingo city, deep in the heart of the reserve. Once the birds are surrounded, the men have to herd them back to the enclosure where they will be raised and cared for during two years. Then, when they will be strong enough, they will be released in the wild. Director : Jean Queyrat & Vincent Gremillon (Cuba).
